Good recipe. Tweaked it a little to suit our needs. I used whole tiny cherry tomatoes, added the avocado on the top of each serving (didn't want the cut avocado to get brown before we ate it), and added a bit of Old Bay seasoning for more flavor. Husband liked it very much. Leftovers were better the second day and I didn't have to cook tonight. I think this would also make a nice potluck dish. Thanks for submitting!

I made this dish for a group of 16, so I doubled the recipe. In the future, I would use less pasta and no lemon. Overall I think the recipe is a nice concept, but falls flat on execution. Try another shrimp pasta salad recipe instead.

This is a very good summer dinner. I followed another reviewers advice and sliced the avacado on top and it made a very pretty presentation. I also added a teaspoon of dijon mustard to give it some zip.

I left out the mayo and bacon and instead used a lowfat bacon ranch salad dressing. This recipe tastes even better after spending a night in the frig.

This salad is great! I don't like pasta in salads, so substituted couscous, will also try with cold cooked rice. Great!

This was good but the pasta was too much. Next time i will skip the pasta and serve with lettuce on a baguette.
