    Mm mmm mmmmmm! This was very good! The flavor combination was wonderful and the hearty pasta is perfect these bold flavors. Pair with a Caesar salad and you have the perfect weeknight meal!

    This was a quick and testy weekday meal! Other than rasting the peppers, the meal came together very quickly. And even roasting the pepper didn't take too much time. I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious!

    This has the perfect amount of spicy kick and was relativly easy to make with a lot of inactive time while the peppers broil and cool. Will make this again for sure.

    Excellent recipe! We loved it, and will definitely make it again. My only suggestion would be to use maybe the slightest bit less butter and/or olive oil to sautee, but even so, this was great. Enjoy!

    This was sooooo good! We made our own pasta, and actually made twice as much (16oz) and the sauce was still enough and delicious. Will definitely make it again!

    This recipe is SOOOOOO good.We could not stop saying,"Yum!!" I took the author's suggestion and used drained, jarred red peppers (actually, pimientos). I also found I could use half the lemon juice. Since we didn't have fettuccine, we used Chinese curly egg noodles and it was delicious beyond belief. I doubled the recipe so we'd have leftovers and ate lunch at 11a.m. the next day just to have it again! Will definitely make this again for any meal. Good enough for special occasions, for sure, but any day we'd like this. Served with spinach salad. A true winner.

    Gale Moody's recipe is just wonderful! My husband and I have just had a sampling of it, and I don't see any way to improve upon it! I wouldn't hesitate to make this as an everyday meal.

    This is an outstanding recipe, have made it 3 times for friends and family. Added 1/4 cup of white wine, used 4 large cloves of garlic and used 1 lb of rock shrimp.

    Really good. I reduced the olive oil to 1 TB bringing recipe to 9 points+/serving. Used a mix of dill, mint, thyme and parsley and spinach pasta. Everyone was in the "clean plate club".

    Really yum! Definitely would make again. Easy and delicious.

    Excellent!!! Used dried herbs with amounts cut in 1/2 and everything turned out delicious. Will absolutely make again.

    I used 16 oz of shrimp, added a zucchini along with onion and garlic, jarred roasted peppers as well. Great weekday dinner, easy to adjust to what's on hand. Don't forget to save some pasta water, it was a bit lacking in sauce at the end.

    Wonderful one dish work night meal. Used whole wheat linguini, sauteed 2 sliced zucchini with the garlic and onion to pump up the veggies. Used 1/2 the amount of dried thyme and sage. Oh yeah, also cut the roasting pepper step and used jarred the first time. Really good!

    An easy and sort of quick meal. I cooked the fettuccine while I prepared the shrimp mixture and skipped the teaspoon of olive oil.

    Quick and easy - big hit with the whole family. I used chopped sundried tomatoes and added zucchini and a small amount of water from the pasta. Really tasty!

    All I wanted to do was use up an almost full but open jar of roasted red peppers; I thought I had a half pound of shrimp in the freezer but turned out there were only 8 jumbo shrimp. I did all my chopping and prepping before I even got started, cutting the shrimp lengthwise to make them go further. THIS RECIPE IS EXCELLENT. Some day I may try it with fresh red peppers but I sure don't see a problem using the jarred to make life easier. And I liked cutting the shrimp in half as they just seemed more "manageable." Well, regardless, I'll be making this recipe a lot!!

    I had no idea this could be as good as it was. Made it with Spaghetti Squash instead of pasta. Other changes: added zucchini and mushrooms after the onion, and I didn't have fresh sage (or dried sage) so I used dried oregano. Truly delicious, we will be making this again soon.

    This was amazing!! I expected good, but I would say this exceeded my expectations. Roasting the red peppers and peeling off the skin was a bit time consuming, if not annoying, but it was well worth it. Everything else was pretty simple. I would definitely make this again. You may need to cut back on the garlic if you are sensitive to it or cooking for anyone who is (we aren't).
