With only 2 Tbsp olive oil and 1 Tbsp lemon juice, being the only liquid in this recipe, how can there be any sauce for the shrimp and pasta? There isn't enough there to cover the shrimp, let alone any for the pasta. Think I'll try making it anyway, but will add a cup of chicken broth and use butter instead of olive oil.

I'm going to try this because it sounds really good and Publix has shrimp on sale very often. I did read one reviewer write that there was 2 lbs of shrimp in this recipe. I read only 1lb of shrimp. If she's using that much shrimp, she should read the recipe again.

Is this really under $10 ?!? Because 2 lbs of shrimp cost $15.99 on the east coast

I used lemon pepper instead of cumin. Served over buttered pasta with steamed broccoli. Great weeknight dinner.

Wonderful dish!! I doubled the sauce to have enough for the rice instead of the pasta.

A nice easy recipe. But there was no flavor for the spaghetti. Not enough sauce.

Great recipe with several modifications. We like a lot of sauce. I saut?ed about1/3 cup chopped onion before adding shrimp. Used Pepper Lemon salt, and juice of 1 large lemon. Added 1 - 16 oz Jar Ragu Alfredo Sauce. Served over pasta. My wife and I devoured it !

I used butter and it was great. Maybe not so healthy, but really tasty. I also didn't use cumin. I wanted the shrimp taste to be primary. .Really quick and easy.
