    Wow! My husband and I both really loved this recipe, and I didn’t change a thing. Next time, I will start cooking the shrimp BEFORE the pasta water is boiling, as the pasta was ready way ahead of the rest. Still turned out great.

    Very good and easy to make. I had cooked shrimp so added it at the end to warm it up.
