Loved this recipe .... with some changes. First of all I completely left out the pasta. I don't see any reason for it. Secondly, I did not grill the shrimp but as another reviewer advised sauteed it with some EVOO, garlic and about 1/4 cup of the juice from the salsa (there is a lot so it won't affect the taste of the salsa at all). Then served the shrimp with the salsa to top it off. It turned out absolutely fantastic!! ;O) Definately a keeper!!

I thought this recipe was okay; however no one else in my family liked it much. I made it with a green salad for dinner on a fall night. I think it would be more appropriate as a pasta side dish at a summer potluck. I liked all the ingredients, but the flavors just did not come together in a positive way for me. I will make the salsa again to use with salmon.

I was looking for a pineapple salsa recipe to compliment my salmon patties when I ran across this recipe. It worked very well and tasted great. I did add some cilantro to it.

I could not imagine cold or even room temp salsa with hot pasta and shrimp, so I made a pasta salad with it. I grilled the shrimp then chilled them. I added the shrimp just before serving. It was very good. Everyone in my family loved it. and that is saying a lot...3 of 4 members HATE pasta salad. It is not so good left over...all the citrus makes the pasta and shrimp mushy, so make only as much as you will use. Also, I used a whole pineapple and all the juices from cutting it. I added the pineapple juice with the other juices. Over all a great salad and I will make it again.

Recipe overall was very good - I added some salt and pepper to the grilled shrimp. I also added some chopped garlic to the salsa - felt it was missing this. Have recommended this recipe to several freinds. Very good!!

This was very good. I cooked the shrimp in a pan with garlic, rather than using the grill. This worked well, offering great flavor. I Then added the salsa mix and pasta to the shrimp. I also used fresh angel hair pasta, for a perfect light summer meal. Easy and very tasty!

good but way too much onion unless i just happened to get a really strong one. the rest of the salsa was fantastic once you get past the overpowering onion.

I used half a lime and substituted shrimp for chicken and it turned out great!
