    I made this dish for my family, of course I modified original recipe to suit what ingredients we lacked. But it gave us the base for an amazing meal.
    very bland. no flavor. needed more garlic and herbs. sauce needs to be thicker so it can grab pasta. I wouldn't recommend making it unless you doctored it up yourself
    I fixed this on my parents 50th anniversary. I had some picky eaters so I substituded and used only shrimp and scallops and they loved it. I was able to put the whole dinner together in about an hour as a surprise to my parents,
    My son and I have a ball putting this one together. We have also used scallops in place of the shrimp when my Mom visits.(allergic) It was good.
    I thought it would be creamier, but it was just too dry for our taste.
    I love this pasta. I made it for my mom on Mother's Day and she loved it.
    This was a real treat when I wanted Italian sea food for Mother's Day! Even without the cheese it's delicious.
