I just made this recipe for the first time this evening and I have to tell you it was as good as advertised.Followed the directions exactly with the exception of adding cherry tomatoes sliced in half and it was delicious. I highly recommend trying this recipe it was super easy (quick) and delicious. thanks for sharing.

My picky brother loved this dish. In fact, I am here to print out my own copy of the recipe since he scoffed up mine! I did use 1 cup of chopped broccolli instead of peas. Next time I will use peas, but add romano/parm cheese to taste

The shrimp was overpowered in this dish.

Excellent. Tasty and fairly quick. I doubled the amount of thyme and used butternut squash ravioli.

Good. I used a 20 oz package of tortellini with the same ingredient measurements and tasted great. Difference was I added the shrimp to the large of pasta after straining the pasta.

My family liked this. It was quick, easy, and very tasty. The only change I made was to add 1/4 cup of the pasta water to the skillet when I added the tortellini.

This recipe was super quick and easy to make, the hardest part was peeling the shrimp. I thought it would come out dry from just the olive oil but it wasn't at all. I'm not usually a fan of peas but they were really good in this dish. I'd make it again.
