    Really tasty but the broth could have been thicker. I did add a bit of half and half and spinach.

    It tasted good. broth needed to be thicker and i added the pasta water to it.

    Delicious! Simple and tasty, and cooking the sauce first and then adding the shrimp to it ensures that the shrimp doesn't overcook.

    I made this last night. It is tasty, however spicy. I would use less red pepper flakes and I would perhaps add half and half to make a thicker sauce. Adding leaf spinach to this would've also been good.

    Soooooooo GrrrrEAT! Used squash noodles instead of pasta, and added finely minced white onion. Couldn’t go wrong (:

    A bit bland, feels like it’s missing something. should have doubled the sauce. thought my kids, who are really good eaters, would love it but they didn’t. Won’t make again.

    Turned out good. i didn't have lemon or garlic. I added onions instead. Still tasty. Next time i will add the lemon amd garlic. I know it will make the dish taste differently.

    Great! Even my super picky 4 year old said it was his favorite and asked if we could have it every night

    Great! In the final stir I added a couple tablespoons of fat free half and half and Parmesan. And served it over cooked fresh spinach ricotta ravioli. Also used lime instead of lemon as this is more palatable to my husband.

    turned out really well. only thing I would change would be cutting the parsley down to 1 tbsp. 1/4 cup seemed excessive. it tasted fine but it turned the scampi green. flavor was amazing though!
