Our son, a restaurant owner, showed me how to make this quick shrimp and noodle dish zipped up with garlic and cayenne. I take advantage of this area's ample shrimp supply and make this special entree often. It's also tasty served over rice.

"WOW!!! This was such a great, simple, easy recipe! I cut this in half for just my husband and I and it wasn't a problem. I used spaghetti as the pasta. I think next time I'll try thin spaghetti. I only used a pinch of cayenne because I didn't want it to be spicy. I also used dry parsley instead of fresh, making sure to do the proper conversion. The lime juice was NOT overpowering whatsoever, it was the perfect amount. My husband and I devoured this. I will DEFINITELY make this again!"

"I have made this multiple times. My boyfriend loves it! I usually cut back a little on the butter and substitute olive oil. It has a good spice without being overbearing."

"very good! a simple and quick meal. would probably only use 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper next time i make it - 1/2 tsp was a bit too much for my preference."

"One of my husband's favorite dishes! I even make this for company. I recommend using fresh shrimp... and don't overcook them or they'll be tough! Cook them just until their pink... only 2-3 minutes. Of course, adding a little extra butter or garlic never hurts though:)"
