    I think this recipe is perfection! This pasta dish is delicious and very simple! I originally made it with pre-cooked shrimp and in that case I just marinaded the shrimp, some garlic, and basil for about an hour before I started the actual cooking for this dish. It was really delicious and fresh tasting (and it was a huge hit at my house)! - Thank you for this great dinner!

    Sorry. More comments from my below review: -Be generous with garlic, salt and pepper. Try taking the raw seasoned shrimp, put in a Zip bag with 3 tbl of olive oil and more minced garlic; shake and marinate about 30 min before cooking. -Use a PINCH of cayenne pepper & 2 or 3 shakes of hot red pepper flakes. Gives BIG boost in flavor w/0 making hot spicy. -Add basil and cherry tomatoes at beginning of sauce. Also adds significant flavor boost. -Cook sauce more than 15 min if too watery

    This recipe is fantastic. I made a few adjustments. The very first time it was a bit watery so I let the sauce boil out longer. ALSO: My additions to the sauce: * Cayenne pepper * Red pepper flakes * 2 more garlic cloves, minced I also added tomatoes and basil at beginning of making sauce. It adds a LOT more flavor to the sauce as it cooks and tomatoes are softer. The red pepper and PINCH of cayenne adds a bit of kick and a much more flavor w/o making it spicy hot. This recipe is great!!

    I usually trust Martha Stewart recipes but this was very disappointing. Do not try it. It was so watery that it was like eating soup.

    Although a good start, I found this too watery and bland for my taste. The second time I added sauteed diced onion and reduced the water by 3/4 and added a 1/4 cup of white wine. That brought it to the level of flavour I prefer.

    I made this last night. I needed something to make with shrimp in a hurry for dinner. I didn't have cherry tomatoes, so I cut the water in half and used only a can of Aylmer Accents tomatoes with celery, green peppers and onions. I doubled up the garlic and added a splash of white wine and I must say this is my new in-a-hurry meal! It was absolutely delicious and it really did take only 30 minutes!

    I have to say - I was really disappointed with how this came out. I tried to double the sauce, which may explain why it didn't work so well. I found the sauce to be very watery versus just a light sauce. It seemed so simple, but really didn't come out well for me.
