  1. This was really good! I was looking for a shrimp and broccoli dish for a little while and I found the one! The only things I did differently were I added a little cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it up and instead of mozzarella cheese I used parmesan. I served this for Valentines day - Read more ...
  2. This was easy to make and my husband and daughter loved it! I might try steaming the shrimp separately so there isn't so much extra moisture in the sauce.
  3. Pretty bland but very easy.
  4. This recipe was great I did alter it a little as well. I simply sauteed the broccoli and shrimp in a little butter and garlic. I then added a garlic and herb sauce and the noodles to the pan with the broccoli and shrimp and mixed the whole thing together and plated it. Lastly I - Read more ...
  5. I changed this a lot but it was great! I doubled the broccoli and halfed the pasta (whole wheat). I steamed the broccoli in the microwave and cooked the noodles. When the noodles were draining I used the same pot and used about 3/4 very low sodium chicken broth and garlic powder and dried basil - Read more ...
  6. As is I would rate it bland an okay I wouldn't make it again but I added parmesian tons of garlic tomato paste wine and basil and the kids gobbled it up haha. Guess it is a different recipe now but the kids liked it much better and so did I.
  7. I have to agree with several other reviewers - there is nothing wrong with this recipe it's just pretty bland. I added extra garlic some cayenne and Parmesan to spice it up but it still needed something more.
  8. A very simple tasty dish. I omitted the mozzarella on top at the end and my family sprinkled parmesan cheese on their own instead. Will definitely make this again!
  9. Easy recipe but not a lot of flavor. I doubled the sauce recipe and it was still dry.
