Seafood Angel Hair

I sent this recipe to my niece when she was in college, and told her to make it for someone special. We all know the quickest way to a man's heart is through his stomach, and since she's now married, I rest my case! Tracy K. Morgan, Summerville, South Carolina

    Followed the instructions exactly. Tasted watery, bland and flavorless. Would not make again.

    this is delicious although I did make it with and without the crabmeat. My family likedit both ways but preferred it without the crabmeat

    I had to come back on this one...I mentioned yesterday that it was good served cold..well, after being refrigerated overnight I had it again today. I just added a small amount of chicken broth to juice it up a little. I ate it right from the frig..I think it was even better than right off the stove. While I was eating it, I thought how good it would be with some chopped cucumber in it. This would be a great Potluck dish...served cold. Also, I didn't use the raw shrimp..(I'm lazy) I used frozen cooked & deveined shrimp. I just put what I needed from the bag in a strainer and ran warm water on them to thaw and then added to the garlic for a moment to blend the flavors. Once it's added to the warm tomato mixture everything becomes the same temperature anyway.Very Good Meal...
