Reviews for Spicy Shrimp & Peppers with Pasta
"Great dish and inexpensive to make. I would double up on the ingredients next time, since this recipe only calls for a half of box linguine"
"Very good and easy to make. I made it without the linguine as we are on a low carb diet and this worked perfectly with the plan."
"I want to make this for my family but i'm not that experienced with cooking or changing the recipes to accommodate a bigger number of people. I want to make it for 6-7 people instead of 4 any suggestions on how much to increase the recipe?"
"Just a fantastic recipe and super healthy, filling and delicious! Crowd pleaser and very very easy to make!"
"Constantly on the menu at my house :)"
"Aside from needing a little extra salt, this dish was fabulous! I used yellow and orange peppers, and green onion instead of shallot. Will definatley be making this again, only halving the recipe b/c the leftovers weren't nearly as good."
"Loved this one. I decreaed the pepper flakes a bit and used yellow and red peppers."
"My husband and I loved this dish. We used bowtie pasta instead of the linguine. We are spice fans, but if you aren't keen on the spice, use less red pepper flakes or none at all! Delicious!"
