Not a bad starting point. Made it as written, and the garlic burned before the onions were tender. We prefer our onions a lot more cooked than our peppers, and by adding them at the same time the peppers were mushy before the onions were tender. This was also a bit bland. I like the other reviewer's idea of adding spinach. I think I'll be using this as the basis of something new, but won't make it as written again. At the very least, I'll be caramelizing the onions before adding the garlic to the pan. I realize that takes this from a quick meal to something that takes longer to prepare, but the taste is worth it. Maybe adding the peppers and shrimp at the same time will keep the peppers the way we like them.

I found this recipe simple but fantastic. With a family who has no experience outside of the usual household kitchen, this recipe was welcomed. I added a little paprika to add to the red color, and also because my family is a fan of the stuff. A little spinach was a good contrast to the color and taste. I highly recommend this dish!

I thought this was very good. Quick and easy. Made as written with the exception of throwing in a couple of large handfuls of baby spinach that I needed to use up and sprinkling with a little shrimp boil seasoning. Would definitely make again. If you want it "saucier" try adding a little reserved water from cooking the pasta.

this recipe was very good. only thing it didn't make enough sauce. Also too long in cooking the shrimp. Cook it that long and the shrimp come out tough.

I prepped everything first, as this comes together very quickly. Used a few tablespoons of olive oil, the onion, had 3 colors of peppers, then the garlic. Thawed, rinsed, and dried cooked shrimp, defrosted frozen spinach, and a can of mushrooms.Toss well to mix. Used up about a cup of Alfredo sauce. Topped with feta cheese. Absolutlely gorgeous and tasty. Easy, too!
