    This was very tasty but I would advise not to thaw the shrimp in salt water as it made the dish a bit salty. Aside from that, it was quite tasty & I’ll definitely make it again.

    Great dinner! I would come down on spice and add shrimp at the last minute so it does over cook. But my family loved it and it’s a keeper recipe!😊

    We like spicy food so I added about a 1/4 teaspoon cayenne. It was absolutely delicious and easy to make. I've made this recipe twice ... the first time I used packaged shredded parmesan which did not melt properly. I discovered that the pre-shredded cheese is processed with a coating to prevent it from clumping together in the package. That coating affects the consistency of the melted cheese. Others may already know this but I stumbled across the fact through other recipe questions/answers and it was news to me. That said, I grated my own parm on the second try and it came out perfectly. Will definitely keep this recipe and make it again. It was really, really good!

    Awesome recipe. :) I followed the recipe to a “T”, with the addition of 1/2 tap of red crushed peppers to add some spice.

    it turned out really good. although i didn't toss it as I wanted some leftovers and the sauce turns solid when it's refrigerated. i also added onion powder, red onions and garlic powder to add more flavor. definitely making again. family loved it
