"Good recipe, very tasty. I'll be making a few adjustments to suit my family's taste. Seemed heavy on the lemon and light on the garlic. We chose to serve over angel hair. Next time we will actually toss the pasta in the big Scampi pan and add a bit more oil so that the flavors combine with the pasta. Overall, a very good mild Scampi. Thank you for posting."

Love this! Added a tbsp of heavy cream and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. The crushed red pepper added some heat that really made it stand out from other scampi's. Will be making this again--soon!

Really enjoyed this dish. I used less oil and added 1/4 cup of white wine and 1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper. Served over linguini and topped with shredded Parmesan cheese. Will make again :)

I added some green pepper, carrots and mushrooms and more lemon juice. It was thick and creamy.

Great Flavor!!! The sauce was a little runny so I might add cream or something to thicken.
