Reviews for Caesar Shrimp and Pasta
"Can't wait to try. Chicken instead of shrimp...maybe chicken Caesar salad taste?"
"Quick, easy, and tasty."
"I'm confused as to why we should cook already cooked shrimp for an additional 3-4 minutes? To my way of thinking, it would make the shrimp tough and rubbery. It only takes about 4 minutes to saute peeled, deveined, uncooked shrimp. I think this would produce a better result."
"Quick, easy and very tasty. Even my 2 and 4 year olds liked it! I also added some chopped asparagus which blended nicely."
"Excellent! My husband loved it and he's a picky eater. It's very easy and tasty."

"This was really good! I don't even like broccoli and I ate this up! Mine was light on dressing because I ran out, but it was still great!"
