    This came out great. I served it over whole grain thin spaghetti. I'll make it again, and next time add a little fresh parsley, or maybe basil. - 7/25/09

  • calories are way off on shrimp, 2 lbs with 4 servings is not 4 oz but 8 oz making it 387 calories. I added lemon zest for stronger lemon flavor, and served over multigrain angel hair, very tasty! Next time I will add some steamed broccoli. - 1/17/15
