Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I like how easy this recipe is, I think I just need a little more flavor to have it be something I would make again. I did swap frozen spinach for fresh, mushrooms for snow peas and bow ties for linguini. It didn't have enough moisture for me, so I added extra olive oil and a little homemade pesto, plus salt/pepper when I was mixing it up. Again, it's totally fine, just fairly bland. When I went back for a little more I added some balsamic glaze to the top, and that worked better for me. But I will say the shrimp was wonderful cooked this way.
