    Great! Sooo good! I added 2 lbsOf large Gulf shrimp. We love shrimp! The only thing I did different was add some small English peas to the pot. I could not quit eating it at the stove it was so good, can’t wait to cook it again.

    The recipe was great. I added red crushed pepper. I also cooked it a little too long when mixing everything together, and it was a bit dryer than I wanted. Lesson learned. So easy for a quick dinner option.

    Way too much pasta for the amount of sauce. I doubled the amount of butter and wine and added a little extra olive oil and it was still way too dry. i also added some lemon zest. The flavor was very nice and light with a subtle lemon taste. I'd suggest making the changes i made but using 8-12 ounces of pasta instead of a pound. Also, season your shrimp with S&P before sauteing them.

    Recipe was fantastic and more than enough to feed 6-8 people. The sauce was drying out a bit so added more lemon and wine. Turned out perfectly.
