Will not be making this again. It barely had any flavor at all.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 29, 2013

I wondered why one reviewed pronounced it 'bland' because it has the right ingredients to be anything but bland - then I noticed the problem. Not nearly enough salt and no pepper at all. Need salt to taste, black pepper, and a dash of cayenne. Also, a touch of Sherry is always great with seafood, so I added about a jigger. It was delicious. Just be careful not to overcook the shrimp.

Love it and I usually do not like a lot of lemon juice.

Wonderful quick and easy dish. The pasta took the longest to cook. Perfect paired with the asparagus. Leftover pasta and ingredients were later sauted up with some Portabellos and was just as wonderful. Great alternative for vegetarians.
