    I don't know - I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely make it again. I used a wheat pasta blend to get more fiber. I also used alittle more red pepper flake since I like my food spicy. Overall - a good dish that I would serve to company.

    Made to recipe except substituted fresh flat pasta for the angel hair and added a bit more red pepper. Cooked over very high heat so the liquid reduced. Quick and easy and very flavorful. Served with spinach/mixed greens/tomato salad. And Chianti Classico. Recommend.

    I have been making this recipe for years. I find it VERY easy and quick since I always have everything on hand. I too use frozen shrimp. I have made this for weekday guests with bread and a greek salad. Delicious, quick and looks great.

    Very good and very easy. Bought frozen, cooked, deveined shrimp from WalMart and this turned out to be an economical meal as well. Worth trying esp if you have kids at home.

    It lives up to being light, but it's a little light on taste too.

    This turned out better than I thought it would. I did reduce the amount of ground red pepper, used pressed fresh garlic and increased the amount of green pepper, but that is just my personal taste. My husband loved it and suggested that we could make this using cooked chicken and/or sausage. Oh, and this does need a small pinch of salt added when the peppers are cooking and another adjustment just before adding the shrimp. This recipe is going to be added to my quick and easy weeknight recipe file.

    Delicious, fast and easy - it doesn't get much better than that.

    This is one of my "go to" recipes when I have unexpected company. I always have frozen shrimp and the other ingredients in the house. Everyone loves it

    This was excellent. The feta cheese was a great addition and none of the flavors overpowered the shrimp. some seafood pasta recipes have to put hot pepper flakes in it to make it flavorful, but this one will stand alone without it. This will be one I use over and over

    An excellent, quick recipe. Tasty and satisfying. I added onion to the tomatoes, which I thought turned out well, and added extra dried basil and oregano. Next time I might partially drain the tomatoes: it turned out a little too liquidy. Served with a green salad and bow tie pasta.

    This recipe was quick and easy to make. The tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano really gives this dish flavor. The angel hair pasta cooks in two minutes. This dish is good for a special occasion or for a nice lunch. This is a recipe I will make again makes a great lunch.

    I made some adjustments: added lots of garlic, fresh tomatoes. I would make this again as a solid, quick weeknight meal.

    I really enjoyed this dish, especially the tang of the feta. I love parmesan, but the feta was tasty for something different. This was relatively simple and easy to prepare. Peeling the shrimp took the longest time; the rest came together quickly. My main change was to drain the tomatoes; I think it would have been too watery with the additional liquid. I used a regular can of diced tomatoes and added dried basil and oregano for more flavor. Served with a simple salad of romaine. Not quite fancy enough for company but perfect for a delicious family meal! Will make again.

    This was a great recipe! Very quick and easy and plenty of flavor. I left out the green peppers since my husband doesn't like them and added a liitle extra Italian Seasoning. I thought the sauce was going to be too thin but that was not the case at all.

    This recipe one of my favorites. It is quick and simple to make and the whole family enjoys it.

    I always have frozen shrimp in the freezer and have been looking for something other than "stir fry" for a quick weeknight meal. I really liked this recipe and only made one change - I used zuchinni since I didn't have any green bell pepper in the house. This was really an easy, quick and flavorful recipe. Definaetly going into the rotation.

    Simply delicious! This recipe is right on point. I used stewed tomatoes and frozen shrimp because that's all I had. I added my own dried Italian herbs. It took no time to put it together and the taste is superb. I am resisting seconds right now. This will definitely be one of my "go to" meals.

    Made this for the first time last night and thought it WAS company worthy. Used fresh garden tomatoes, red bell pepper, fresh basil, oregano and garlic for the sauce instead of the canned tomatoes. A touch of red pepper flakes and lots of cracked black pepper. Had cooked jumbo shrimp on hand, so briefly simmered it in the sauce to heat through. Put it over whole wheat angel hair and topped with the feta. Beautiful and so flavorful ! Served with roasted garlic on toasted bagette. Can't wait to make it for friends.

  • WordLady Posted: 05/16/12

    Yum! I used all fresh veggies: tomatoes, yellow squash, and zucchini; added basil and oregano, and had to use frozen shrimp. Didn't have feta cheese on hand so we just used parmesan. The family loved it!

  • EICrabb Posted: 11/27/13

    Not my favorite cooking light recipe. It was a bit hot, would leave out the red pepper next time and add lots more vegetables, make it like a primavera.
