A great summer evening meal! We added the pine nuts and basil as suggested by the other reviewer, and it was amazing! Fresh flavors with a hint of spice to finish it off. YUM!!

Another great recipe!!
Great with a bowl of cut strawberries as a side dish and a good bread or rolls.

Too much pasta
Loved the recipe, but there was too much pasta. Either use half a box of pasta, or 2 lbs of shrimp.
