Reviews for Broccoli Shrimp Pasta Toss
"Easy and delicious!"
"This recipe was very bland and needs some kind of sauce for the pasta. No one liked it until I threw together a little no fat sour cream, a little 2% milk and Parmesan and tossed it all together. Pasta with nothing coating it is awful."
"My family loved this recipe. We had all the ingredients on hand and it was something I threw together, I also incorporated the additional ingredients the 1 reviewer suggested. It worked out great!"
"I really liked this dish. I did add some fresh spinach to the saute of onion & garlic. Next time I make this I may try adding a little lemon juice & zest. An easy & fast dish to make."
"This dish is on the table faster than fast food and it's so much better for you. I make this often and have made only a few changes. I use a whole grain pasta, I add a chopped red pepper, as other reviewers stated... I use cooked shrimp to get this dish on the plate even quicker. As the final touch I add is a sprinkling of crushed red pepper. Delish!"
"I don't care for shrimp, but I made this for my husband and he was very pleased with this recipe!"
"This was a wonderful and very tasty dish. My picky son even liked it!! I also used cooked shrimp. yum!"
"Very good!! And you can use cooked shrimp, just put them in a min. or 2 until they are warm. Will definately fix again!!"
"My family enjoys this recipe very much. I sometimes substitute chicken breasts (cubed) instead of shrimp."
