About this recipe: A simple, yet delectable prawn pasta. Fusilli is tossed with Parmesan in a garlic-infused olive oil and served with sauteed prawns. Enjoy with a side salad or crusty bread.
Oh my goodness! This is the easiest and tastiest shrimp scampi type pasta I've ever had! I cannot believe how little effort this elegant dish took! I only changed a few things about this recipe: 1) I used a gourmet garlic-infused extra virgin olive oil instead of grilling the garlic in oil. 2) Also 6 tablespoons seems a bit much...that's more than 1/3 cup of oil for pasta for 2 people. I reduced to 4 tablespoons (or 1/4 cup) for the amount of pasta suggested and it came out great. 3) I added the drained pasta directly to the sauting shrimp in the large skillet. (You have to have a very large skillet...which I did.) And 4) You should taste the pasta after you mixed it with the oil. I found that I needed to add a little bit (1 teaspoon or so) of garlic salt to kick up the flavor. This recipe is definitely a keeper! - 26 Jun 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Mmmmmmm yummy! Instead of using 8oz pasta I used a full pound of thin spaghetti. I made the sauce with 8 tbsp EVOO, half a stick of butter, juice of 2 lemons, 4 cloves garlic minced, and 1 tsp crushed red pepper. I added about 1 1/2 lbs pre-cooked frozen shrimp to the sauce. but I forgot the parsley! so I am giving this 4 stars because I changed it alot. Thanks so much for the recipie idea it was simple and tasty - 07 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Really good; I agree with using less oil (4 tablespoons are enough). I added one diced avocado and 2 cups of shrimp as opposed to the prawns and 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar; yum! - 01 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
