"A twist on shrimp scampi that I threw together for my hungry husband one day, with thing out of the cupboard. It went over so well that it is a regular at our house now." — Rachel Timmerman

As written, this recipe is very tasty and gets 4-1/2 stars in my book! The only thing that I wasn't that happy about was that the sauce seemed kind of watery - but it was still good. The second time I made this, I added 1/4 cup heavy cream and fresh mushrooms - this bumped it up that 1/2 star to make it 5 stars! This will definately be a keeper
Absolutely delicious! I didn't want to spend a lot of money for shrimp, so I used chicken instead. Turned out great!
My husband and I enjoyed this recipe, and it was really quite simple to make! It wasn't a WOW in the flavor department, but it was fresh, simple and tasty. We also loved the spicy zip of the red pepper flakes (we LOVE spicy food). I followed the recipe to the letter (all except I used regular diced tomatoes instead of those with green chiles, and I used 3/4 of a lb of shrimp instead of a full pound because it was really expensive at my local seafood store).
The fresh parsley is a great touch and the leftovers are almost as good as the first go-round.
I will add this to my recipe box and make it again. Although next time, I might add another 1/2 cup of diced tomatoes, and will try the ones with the green chiles as suggested. Thanks Rachel!
This was very tasty. I didn't have penne, so I used whole wheat pasta and it was delicious. A little spicy for the kids, but very tasty. I will definitely make it again.
This was an amazing recipe....I followed it exactly, except I did add some cream cheese in at the end
Excellent. A perfect weeknight meal when you are low on groceries. I had some fresh basil so added that in addition to the parsley. I also used half butter and olive oil because I like the flavor of the two together. If you like this try the Pasta with Tuna Sauce recipe also on this site. Both are quite good.
I thought this was delicious, however this does not feed 4. Feeding 4 would mean each person would only get a cup of penne pasta. I used 12 oz of pasta and doubled the ingredients, then added black olives and mushrooms. I kept everything else the same! It as super good! Thank you for sharing Rachel!
tried last night and it was a big hit in my house.. Will make again
