"I love this recipe, increased the amount of asparagus and shrimp, and cut the mushrooms into quarters rather than slices, also added zucchini and red peppers slices.

left out the tomatoes, had none, but will try
it the next time. I've made this several times and will keep making it, thanks for the recipe."

"I just loved this meal, I used linguini instead, also only had cooked shrimp, so I added them in the end with the cooked pasta and heated for 1 or 2 min. turned out wonderful.

thanks for the great recipe, I'm looking forward to making it again."
