"I used store-bought fresh tomato salsa from Festival, to save time and for a recipe for 2. It was more spicy."

"Made this with regular spaghetti and mixed heirloom tomatoes; also added a bit more garlic and a small amount of white wine. Delish!"

"I make this recipe all summer with our garden fresh tomatoes. Soooo good. I like to add a little extra garlic and some toasty bread to go with. One of our summer favs."

"I nervously made this recipe for my meat and potatoes husband but he loved it - added a little more garlic and basil since my family loves that. I let the sauce marinate for about an hour too which I think melded the flavors wonderfully. I would definitely make it again."

"My family did not like this recipe at all. The shrimp had no flavor because it wasn't cooked in a sauce, the fettucine was dry and cooled off quickly because the sauce is at room temperature. The next day I made an alfredo sauce to try and make this recipe more palatable."
