    Delicious! I added more butter and a little less wine (tripled the recipe!) and it came out perfect!

    Tasty, but when I doubled the recipe, the sauce was a little thin. Would use more butter and less wine and lemon juice

    It was great! The sauce was very flavorful. I added red chili flakes as recommended and it gave the sauce a nice kick. Definitely better than the shrimp scampi I order at a restaurant!

    Used this as a guide. Used penne pasta,( to use up). Added mushrooms to garlic & butter. 1/8 cup of lemon juice. 1/4 cup chicken broth. Added garlic herb spread (1/4 cup) with the parmigiana. Add partial dried basil instead of parsley. Next time will use pasta water instead of chicken broth, just because, no sense wasting all the water. Don’t think it will change the flavor. Also, didn’t measured red pepper, just sprinkled. Would be great with scallops added, and maybe mussels. ( seafood scampi)

    Very good. Next time I'll be using a little less lemon zest and a little more butter.

    Used a little more butter and a little less lemon. Used over zucchini noodles.

    Delicious! To begin, I sautéed the garlic in a bit of olive oil and added butter. Then at the end I drizzled a touch of olive oil over it before tossing it all together. I will definitely be making this again!

    SO good! Followed recipe except: instead of white wine or chicken stock, I used 1/4 cup of pasta water ( which contains the starch from the cooked pasta so the sauce thickens and is reabsorbed by the pasta). The lemon zest adds a fresh taste. Delicious !

    Had great flavor, I added wheat flour to mine to thicken, came out lovely.

    The liquid needed to be thicker but other than that it was great!

    I've tried a lot of shrimp scampi recipes but never added red pepper flakes. It gave this savory familiar recipe a new dimension, we really enjoyed it.

    Turned out great! I wish i had seen the review below about adding heavy cream, i like my pasta a bit creamier. Next time i make it i will be adding cream
