Wonderful, easy weeknight meal. I added pepperflakes and two cans of drained diced tomatoes (did not have fresh tomatoes) after the garlic and oil cooked about a minute. I also added the shrimp and asparagus the last minute of cooking the pasta, drained it, and then immediately added it to the oil mixture. Skipped the broth. Thought the cilantro was a flavorful, nice addition.
It worked out great the first time. I would not give it 5 stars as-is due to a slight lack of flavor. It does lend itself as a great empty palette if you have a list of favorite seasonings. Substitute something spicy (red pepper or creole seasoning) to make it just right. I'm considering trying some cooking wine next time. I think it would be great. A keeper.
