    My family (including twonsmall children) LOVED this! I ended up with too much sauce left in the pan and there was just a tad too much lemon juice in it to coat the noodles with it. However, with some minor adjustments (or even without!) this is definitely a keeper. Probably one of the easiest meals, too!

    The recipe was suspiciously short, and, once I began cooking, I understood why: several steps are left for your own inference. I don't necessarily mind this, but after a long day of work and helping the kids with homework, I kinda just want a recipe that lays it out for me so I don't really have to think about those steps. However, it tastes amazing, and I will probably make it again.

    Very bad. I wasted $35 of groceries my kids couldn’t eat it because of how bad it was.

    Was excited to try this, however we found it a bit bland so had to add extra seasoning. Also would have preferred a sauce of sorts since it was quite dry, however that may be due to preference or the lack of flavour. Had to throw together a quick sauce to make it more interesting.

    Great recipe. Like others, added some red pepper flakes to give the dish a little punch. Love the lemon flavor. After reading comments below wanted to share the following. Technically, the word scampi refers to an edible lobster that is also called Dublin Bay Prawn or Norway Lobster. Shrimp Scampi is a culinary preparation of crustaceans that includes shrimp or prawns. Shrimp Scampi preparations vary a lot regionally, with some including other crustaceans, using a tomato base or broiling or deep frying large shrimp with the tail on and calling it Scampi, while others call battered shrimp and other crustaceans Battered Scampi. In the US, if you scan numerous cookbooks, the most commonly accepted definition of Shrimp Scampi appears to be large shrimp or prawns cooked in some garlic and oil/butter combination. If you are traveling and order Scampi, make sure you know what you are ordering. If in Italy you will probably get a preparation similar to this recipe. Elsewhere-who knows!!!

    Your title for this recipe is redundant...after all, Scampi IS lemon and garlic!

    Very tasty. Super easy to overcook the shrimp (which I did sadly) so it's important to watch out for that. I also made it a bit saucier by doing an egg/pasta water mix similar to a carbonara.

    Didn’t have quite enough fresh lemon juice, so added two hand-squashed tomatoes and fresh basil. Otherwise followed recipe. Delicious!

    Great but next time I will add paprika and/or cayenne pepper for a little more kick

    Great recipe. Only change is I seasoned the shrimp with pepper and red pepper flakes while searing and also increased broiling time

    Did not add bread crumbs but did add extra Parmesan. This was the best shrimp scampi recipe that we’ve tried!
    Delicious and super super easy. My wife always prefers Panko to bread crumbs so I swapped that out and it gave the shrimp a nice crunch to contrast the soft noodles

    Not that great, lacked in flavor for the noodles. I’d prefer wet sauce
