This recipe needs no alterations!!! Very good and extremely easy. The rich buttery sauce really enhances the natural flavor of the shrimp and the ease of preparation makes it one I'll make time and again!!! Kudos!!!

I made the sauce, cooked the pasta and sauteed the shrimp but the sauce tasted so awful, I had my husband taste it. I figured it might be just me having a problem since all these good reviews were up but he agreed. This is horrible! Don't waste your time or precious ingredients.

Too lemony with the juice of half a lemon. I found it to be tasteless and too heavy with all the butter.

Just sat down to review this and realized I forgot to add the parsley at the end. Opps. Very good, but make sure to add a good amount of hot sauce. Really needs it for flavor. I didn't because of a 9 y/o girl whos kinda picky, but i added it to my bowl and yum!

Very good! I was a little nervous about sauteeing shrimp for the first time, but they came about perfectly. I read other reviews about the flavor being a bit bland, so added some diced habanero peppers and italian seasoning for more spice--and it was perfect! I added slightly less butter, about 6 tbsp, and used rotini pasta. No complaints!

My Husband and I truly enjoyed this recipe. We added a little bit of a Teriaky marinade to it. A really yummy meal.

Pretty good. As it was I thought it was a bit plain, but still good so I put four stars. Added chili powder and a lotta cayenne to my own.

This was pretty good. I have been looking for a recipe that calls for fines herbs and it was nice to finally use them.
