Shrimp Scampi looks like you fussed, but it’s a snap to prepare. Lemon and herbs enhance the shrimp, and bread crumbs add a pleasing crunch. Served over pasta, this main dish is pretty enough for company. —Lori Packer, Omaha, Nebraska

"So quick, simple & good. Restaurant quality taste. I used farfalle (bow tie) pasta & it was perfect, all the nooks & crannies collected the crumbs & garlic. Once the garlic is minced & the shrimp is cleaned, this dish comes together in 5 minutes. I made this recipe as is, but you could add a veggie or two, it would be fabulous."

"Delicious! Be careful not to overcook the shrimp though. With sauteing and a quick broil, it's easy to do. I will make again and will add a little white wine. We did enjoy the added crunch from Panko breadcrumbs!"
