Super quick, easy and delicious

"I loved the spice of the red pepper flakes mixed with the sweetness of the olive oil dressing for the pasta. I added a little more red pepper than suggested, since I love spicy food... It was so spicy that I cried like a little girl. Definitely stick with the 1/2 tsp. I liked that it was really quick. The part that took the longest was waiting for the pasta to boil."

I don't know what I did wrong. The flavors are nice, but my pasta was bland and dry. I used fettuccine. Maybe that was the problem.

It was very good .instead of me using salt and pepper I use Cajun seasoning and it was very good. All my husband could say 'why couldn't you had gotten more shrimp'?! I loved this recipe and I would cook it again..Thanks

I added red peppers and gave it a bit of a wine sauce and it turned out great!

I've ruined it with too much (you just won't believe it) lemon juice. But i see the potential — it's really quick and easy — just perfect for working evenings. I'm making it one more time tomorrow.

Really simple quick meal. Very tasty. I used whole wheat spaghetti and served with asparagus. Will make again.
