"This shoulds good, I have not made yet but will try - adding the salt and a dash of cayenne to the shrimp before the saute' - also will add drizzle of olive oil & lightly toss until pasta is coated before garnishing with the parsley."

"Very easy to make. Good flavor. I just wish it had a little bit more sauce. It can be kind of dry."
