Reviews for Tomato 'n' Shrimp Pasta
"I have made this several times and will also add in some scallops for company. Its a hit with everyone who tastes it. It's a definate company recipe."
"So far I have only made this once - but I will make it again. I pretty much stuck to the recipe - but used rice noodles instead of the spaghetti."
"I am not a fan of thick sauce for pastas and this was perfect with the chunks of tomatoes and the shrimp. The juice from the tomatoes was all that was needed to coat the spaghetti."
