Italian Shrimp and Pasta
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 30 min.
Simple, excellent recipe. I used wine instead of broth and recommend more garlic. Also, make sure you have time to let the pasta simmer in the sauce just a bit to let it soak up some of the flavors.
I haven’t tried this yet, but honestly as soon as I saw chicken broth Been Italian all my life, who the hell is putting chicken broth in sugo I made a regular tomatoes sauce as I always do and added shrimp
Made this for our relative from Italy and I think this was the best pasta dish I have ever made. I did make a few modifications like white wine for the broth plus some crushed red pepper flakes for some zing. I also added some capers. The best part was that it gets even better on the second day. PS, nothing left for a third meal.
I wanted to try something different to make with shrimp, I always make it with lemon or lime flavors. This recipe seemed perfect. After thinking that I had all of the ingredients, I didn't. Instead of using 2 cans of diced tomatoes, I used one can and a really small can of tomato sauce. I also used fettuccine instead of angel hair. Based on other reviews, I added some garlic powder and some crushed red pepper. Overall, I would definitely make it again!
No flavor. Followed recipe exactly. Felt like it was a waste of the shrimp.
Good concept....but needs some tweaks. 1). Use csnned diced tomatoes with Basil, Oregano,&Garlic already in the tomatoes. This change alone makes a big difference....( but I use Delmonte brand and NOT Hunts brand...just a personal taste choice ) 2) Saute 1 medium shallot till softened. Add in Garlic....more like 3 cloves. Then add in 1/ 8 th to 1/2 t. red pepper flakes 3) For a thicker sauce add in a few tablespoons to 1/2 C. your fav tomato sauce. See also Pasta Alla Betsy ..pioneerwoman.com.. ( 16 minute meals). or on food network.com for similar and better recipie.. Finally add in some parm cheese. I still use the herbs listed...just a bit more. alsoI add fesh Basil and a little fresh flat leaf parsley chopped at the end.
It was kinda quick and easy but no pizzaz. No flavor. Those were actually my wife's comments when I made it and I agree with her. I won't be making this again.
Great recipe. I added a little pesto to the sauce for extra flavor.
Liked the flavors. We liked the thin sauce for a change. I find some sauces overpower the other ingredients.
Easy and delicious. Previous reviewers are right in saying the sauce is very runny. I tried leaving out the chicken broth and just adding bouillon granules. Really tasty, although still runny. You might try a previous reviewers idea of substituting a can of tomato past for one of the cans of diced tomatoes.
