"This is great!"
"Soooo yummy, quick & easy!"
"This was easy and really good. However, I did make changes. I added a cup of dry white wine, used fresh garlic, added a teaspoon of lemon juice and a teaspoon of Italian seasoning. I served over angel hair pasta and topped it with fresh Parmesan."
"This is not any shrimp scampi - it's made with white wine. NEVER soup - gross."
