(Almost) Perfect Pasta
I sort of used this recipe as a basis of my meal. Because Buitoni pasta was not available at my grocery store, I opted for dried linguini instead. I added a little twist to this recipe by roasting a container of grape tomatoes and adding those to the mixture. The lemon offered the perfect tangy flavor to the pasta, though I chose to add more than was called for. This recipe, because of the pre-cooked elements, is perfect for entertaining so that you can actually mingle with your guests instead of being stuck in the kitchen!
it looks real great and it's look lokks great but i am allergic to shrimp oand or shelfish and or seafood!!!!!!! but my mom says it it good she is not alergic!!!!!
A family pleaser!
I really liked this recipe, but I did make a few changes. I added a half of a red bell pepper (finely chopped), and some minced garlic. I initially sauteed the pepper, garlic & green onion together then added the rest of the ingredients (I thought the amount of lemon zest was perfect). This dish also makes for good leftovers!!
a slight change
I make this but add 1/2 pound of cooked scallops (in addition to the shrimp). It's a yummy seafood dinner.
This meal was so fast and delicious. I added saute onions to give it a little kick!!! It was excellent. My husband and I enjoyed it.
Using other reviewers' suggestions as a guideline I added extra lemon juice (a whole lemon) and I sauteed 1/2 a chopped red bell pepper and some fresh chives and added it to the mix. This was the best dish from this website that I've tried so far. My husband gave me extra hugs after dinner!! I'll definitely make it again!
Tt was the best ever - Thank you!
This meal is very appealing in terms of taste, color and texture. My family thought it was delicious! The ease of preparation is a big plus. I did double the shrimp portions,we love our seafood!
Don't let Em cook
My roomate made me this and I was almost sick. I love shrimp but come on now... ewwww.
Easy to make
This recipe is really easy to make! For sure I'll make it again.
I am always searching for new shrimp recipes, and this one was quick and tasty. I could not find lemon peel, so I just squeezed some lemon juice in instead. The taste of the dish was unique; be careful not to pour too much of the sauce over the pasta, the pesto could get overbearing. Overall a good dish to try at least once.
If your a pasta and shrimp lover,this is a must try!It was quick,easy,and YUMMY!Also tried it was chicken breast and it was good!GREAT for a family on the run!
Not bad...it would GREAT if you added vegatables with it! Try it with chicken instead of shrimp too.
