Shrimp Pasta Primavera Recipe

They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. So when I invite that special guy to dinner, I like to prepare something equally special. This well-seasoned pasta dish has lots of flavor...and it won't hurt your budget! -Shari Neff Silver Spring, Maryland

"Enjoyed this dish but it lacked some UMPH! We used fresh basil and thyme and dried oregano and parsley. I think the balance of veggies is about right. I think I'd use more garlic and a 1/2 & 1/2 butter and EVOO. increase the salt slightly and try it again. Overall a good meal"

"This meal was outstanding. I only used half of the herbs, and it was perfectly flavored for us. Just the right amount of kick with the red pepper. I will definitely be serving this again!"

"My husband thought this was good but I only thought it was so-so. Maybe it was because I used dry spices instead of fresh (I did the conversion and it was still way too much), or maybe because it was just a bit too oily (even though I cut back on it), or maybe it was because I used low fat, low sodium chicken broth. The amount of shrimp and asparagus seemed good but I found it needed more tomatoes. I may double that next time. It had a good overall flavor but lacked something. Next time I'm going to either do half oil, half butter, or just do all butter. I think that will give it a nice taste. Maybe even add in some lemon juice. Not sure what to do about the herbs though... I never have fresh on hand and would hate to buy some just for this dish alone. I'd try this again."

"It is so delicious and I change it up all the time. I add green and red peppers always. Only a small amount of the oregano and less of crushed pepper. Last night I used scallops instead of shrimp and broccoli instead of asparagus and added squash too it was just as delicious! I have made it with just vegetables. Always use the chicken broth and spices and it will be delicious however you make it."

"I doubled the recipe and used spinach (one 10 oz. bag for the double batch). I also used reduced sodium canned broth, but then felt like it needed more salt. I omitted thyme (b/c I wasn't growing any) and increased the other herbs. After comparing this recipe to a another similar recipe, I also used 8 cloves of garlic and will probably use more plus larger amounts of herbs next time. YUMMY!"

"This is a great recipe. It's the one that my husband always requests. I often substitute other vegetables for asparagus. It all depends on what I have on hand."
