Reviews for Basil Shrimp Fettuccine
"Made this over the weekend and it was a easy recipe to make. We enjoyed it but I did add lemon pepper to give it a more distinct flavor."
"everytime i make this dish i hide it from my family. this is toooo good to share"
"The overall taste was great. Next time, instead of adding the shrimp to the liquid, I will quick saute them in a separate pan so I can more easily tell when they're done."
"I tend to leave out the cayenne pepper as I think it creates too much spice for the dish. Other than that, this is great recipe!!"
"My family loves this recipe! I usually leave out the cayenne pepper and add more garlic."
