Many professional chefs claim that one of the biggest mistakes home cooks make is to not heat their pans hot enough. There is nothing dangerous about pre-heating a pan for 3 minutes to get it to the proper temperature. I do it all the time......This was okay. Nothing special. I'm on South Beach and I couldn't find any whole wheat orecchiette so I used about 8 oz of whole wheat small elbows. I added some chopped yellow summer squash and chopped tomatoes after the onions cooked for a bit. I decreased the chicken stock to one cup and used some spicy V8 in place of the other cup. I added some cayenne and Sazon to spice up the dish a little. This was okay, a decent Tuesday night dinner, but I'm not sure I'll make it again. There are better uses for a pound of shrimp.


As most of us do I changed this recipe a bit. First off, putting anything into a pan that has been on high for 3 minutes can't be safe. Used bag of fresh baby spinach instead of froz, didn't have right shaped pasta so used penne, used 1 can (14 1/2oz) of diced tomatoes and dropped the tom sauce altogether and cut the broth/stock to one cup. Added 4oz. of sliced baby bellas with onion & garlic. I added spinach when called to add sauce, should have waited and added w/shrimp. Tuff to cook pan to dry as instructed so didn't. This is really very good and would have given it 5 stars except for the dangerous first instruction.
