  1. Just found this recipe and made it tonight. It was wonderful!
    The 1/2 & 1/2 adds a great touch.
    I added chopped asparagus to the last few minutes of the boiling angel hair, and sprinkled red pepper flakes to the shrimp for some heat.
    Tomorrow I am making your curry chicken.
    Thank you for your wonderful recipes!

  2. My husband made this for me. It was delicious ! While looking for recipes he found this website. He noticed the recipes had w.w points and was thrilled. What a supportive husband. Didn't know he was listening when I told him I was starting w.w.

  3. I made this fantastic dish last night, had to substitute the half and half, since I can't find any where I live, with Light Liquid cooking cream and I added some chilli flakes and some chilli powder since we love spicy food. It was extremely delicious! Definitely a Keeper. Thank you again for another great recipe 🙂

  4. I made this last night for me and my fiancé. We loved it!!!! This recipe is definitely special occasion worthy or company worthy, but so easy for a quick weekday night as well. And it was so quick!! The most time consuming part of the recipe was waiting for the pasta water to boil. I would change a thing!

  5. Made this tonight for dinner. Absolutely wonderful. The flavors were so well balanced. Didn't use canned tomatoes though, used fresh tomatoes and 2 ounces of tomato sauce and only a quarter of cup half and half. It was great. Glad I ran across your website.

  6. This might seem like a silly question but is this dish 10 points WITH the angel hair pasta or just the shrimp with the sauce.

  7. i was wondering will it be okay to sub plain greek yogurt for the half and half? will the taste and consistency change?

  8. Hi I'm in th uk so some of the items needed have thrown me! But i love the sound of it! What's half/half? also can you use spaghetti instead of angel hair? I don't think thses items are sold in the UK thanks

    1. Hi! I live in the UK as well (but am American). 1/2 and 1/2 is single cream and you can use spaghetti but vermicelli is actually angel hair and is a much thinner pasta than spaghetti. I usually by my vermicelli at Sainsburys. Good luck!

  9. Made this tonight for my BF and he said it was DELICIOUS. I will be having some for lunch tomorrow. But I must say, this had the house smelling so GOOD!!!

  10. I made this a couple of nights ago for dinner. This was super easy to make and surprisingly very tasty! I was skeptical about the flavors since it didn't involve a lot of ingredients, but this was really good! I did make a few substitutions because it was what I had: we only had canned diced tomatoes with chile, sherry cooking wine for white wine, and I used garlic salt on the shrimp with the oregano. Other than that, I followed the recipe and it turned out yummy. The diced tomatoes add a neccesary acid.

    This was SO yummy, and my husband ate it up! He was so shocked to find that it was, in fact, a "skinny" recipe! Thanks for this!

  12. This is so good! I've made it twice now and my 6 year old says I should work in a restaurant when I make it.:) I did add a can of crushed tomatoes too since my family likes their sauce to cover the pasta. It is super easy to make and amazingly good! This has been added into the permanent dinner rotation! I love your recipes!!
