Reviews for Mediterranean Shrimp and Linguine
"If I had ordered this in a restaurant, I would have been totally satisfied. What a delicious meal."
"This recipe needs something. I liked the idea that it was healthy and quick, but it was rather tastless. As previous reviewer noted she is adding lemon juice. My husband suggested using Kalmata olives and maybe adding a quarter cup of liquid from the artichoke can to the vegetable mixture. It was just missing something. I will give it another shot with alterations."
"I added fresh lemon juice (1-2 lemons) very tasty."
"My husband and I both loved it! I will be making this again."
"Making it again tonight. This is really, really delicious. (Even the leftovers were delicious!)"
