  • Incredible!

    We really really liked this. I read the reviews and saw someone thought it was dry, so added 1/2 cup white wine while it was simmering. Not a lot of calories but saucier and tasted great. Also added 1 tsp white pepper. I will make this again. It's my 4 yr olds new favorite dinner. - 4/1/09

    If this recipe makes 6 servings, then each person only gets 2 or 3 shrimp in their whole meal? Maybe I'm still getting used to portion control... I still give it 5 stars, because it was delish, but I had to eat two servings to feel full! - 3/22/10

    Really good...I didn't add the broccoli as I made roasted asparagus but it was very tasty, I also added a couple tablespoons of fresh grated paremsan cheese. Thanks for a simple, quick recipe that my family loves! - 4/30/09

  • I've made this twice now and my husband & sons loved it. I also added a little white wine plus a squirt of unsweetened lemon juice while shrimp were simmering, & also thin slices of red bell peppers for some color & crunch. Used whole wheat linguine. Love this recipe, thanks for sharing! - 2/10/13

  • This was super easy and quick to make. Very tasty. However, I'll double (or triple) the broccoli next time. Just didn't seem to have enough vegetables for my liking. - 9/8/11

  • This is an excellent recipe. My family is changing our eating habits and having our big meals at lunch. This was just right for a big, but light meal. Tasted excellent. I used more lemon juice, but I also doubled the recipe - 4/26/11

  • This was amazing! I simmered the ingredients in white wine and added a bit of reduced fat parm and crushed red pepper for a little kick. It wasn't at all dry served over angel hair pasta. Will definitely make again! - 1/27/11

  • I pulled out shrimp and broccoli and went searching for a recipe... and here it is! it taste amazing! i actually didn't have the olive oil, but i did cut back on the butter and it's still great~ thanks! - 7/27/08

  • Since there was no real sauce, my hubby had to add extra olive oil to his pasta make it edible--and he LOVED it! I didn't, however (as I didn't want the extra calories) and found it tasty but really much too dry. Perhaps I did something wrong, though. (I used fresh broccoli and perhaps that's why.) - 7/1/07
