  • “This is an outstanding dish.All of the flavors worked beautifully together.With the spinach it is differen’t from other scampi’ that I have had.Loved the green with the pink of the shrimp.Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe.You can bet I will be using this one again.”

  • “Quick and easy to make.Great taste sensation.I used fettucine in place of the linguine.The red pepper flakes gives this dish a nice ‘zing’Thanks for posting.=)”

  • “I thought this was wonderful. Here are the changes I made: I used almost a pound of whole wheat fettucini. I added extra garlic–about 3 very large cloves. It took a lot longer than 5 minutes for the mushroom-water to evaporate. Since my shrimp was already thawed, I added the shrimp and spinach at the same time. I went heavy on the cheese and red pepper. I also threw in about a tablespoon of butter when the mushrooms were cooking. I thought this was a bit more work than I expected, but it was worth it. Good going!”

  • “I followed the recipe as written and was disappointed.The pepper flakes added a little bite but the dish was still rather bland.”

  • “I found this recipe in Favorite Brand Name Fresh Foods and it sounded very quick and easy.It lived up to my expectations.This was reduced to 2 servings and fettuccine used in place of the linguine.Next time around, I will try this with angel hair.”
