    I used white wine for 1/2 cup of the liquid and it really added a nice flavor. I really love this and will be making it again real soon. - 3/27/11

    The arugula didn't quite wilt enough for me when I put the pasta on top of it. I think next time I would throw it in when the shrimp is thrown back into the sauce. Otherwise, we all loved the recipe! Great flavor!
