Reviews for Spinach Shrimp Fettuccine
"I made this for dinner, this evening, and feel that it was a bit bland. Sorry, but unless you have a piece of shrimp in every bite, which isn't the case, something needs to be added flavor-wise -- red pepper flakes, or as mentioned, feta cheese...Just something complimentary for added taste. Otherwise, it is a fast and easy little pasta dish."
