Wonderful recipe! Love the bread crumb topping. Served along with the garlic almond green beans. Special enough for company.

Very good and definitely will make it again. A little too tart for me so I’ll not quite use all of the 1/4 c lemon juice.

This is buddy valastro's recipe with the exception of putting under broiler. In my 62 years of cooking, (since 8 years old) I have spent the last 2 years modifying my method to buddys. This recipe takes it up a notch because of the broiling...better for the bread crumbs. I significantly increase the number of shrimps (usually 2 plus pounds) and increase the sauce. It is classic shrimp scampi.

Incredibly tasty! Hubby and I made this today for the first time and loved it. Used crunchy Italian bread crumbs. Doubled the butter and increased amount of cheese. Also added some frank's hot sauce. Absolutely delicious. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!

Made this once before and found it to be very good. I am making it today for Easter dinner as there is only the two of us and wanted something elegant, but delicious. My only changes (based on the first time) is I will add a bit more garlic (it all depends on the size of your garlic cloves, some are small, but some I buy are huge) and I will add some white wine to the sauce (also will double the sauce). This time I plan on serving it over rice instead of the pasta. That along with some steamed asparagus and rolls...............Yummmmmm.
