    I made this delicious pasta dish again this evening . I only had 7 shrimp but decided to move forward anyway. It was delicious anyway, robust and perfectly garlicky. Fortunately, I had a bunch of baby arugula to add to the pasta.

    Excellent! I love to cook and this has become one of my favorite recipes. I substitute cilantro for parsley.

    It’s really light and yummy! I substituted fresh scallops for the shrimp and it turned out spectacular! I seasoned my scallops with more than just salt and pepper. The red peoper flakes add a nice spice to it.

    It’s great! I used spinach instead of arugula. Still very yummy! The butter to garlic ratio is perfect.

    Yummy. Didn't have all the bits but it was still great. I'll use a bit less butter next time, though.

    This recipe is delicious. I tried this with spinach filled ravioli instead of tagliatelle and it turned out great as well.
