  1. delicious, i might try this on weekend

  2. Black Pepper - ahhhh i love pepper :) i will try this too.

  3. On my way to the kitchen now :)

  4. mmm this sounds tasty. I've never even heard of Scampi Sauce, but I think I will make this tomorrow. Is this to have with pasta etc?

  5. Yes this is a pasta sauce. Olive Garden uses it for their Chicken Scampi. Angel hair pasta, sauteed bell peppers and onion, sauteed chicken, and this sauce!

  6. I wish I could cook better, but this recipe looks so easy that I think I could do it.

    Thanks for the recipe! I love italian food.

  7. Honestly they are all very easy to make. The people working in the kitchen at Olive Garden are usually just college students, at least at the one I worked at. Nothing to it.

  8. that sounds amazing. never been to an olive garden, but that sauce sounds like it would be pretty good.

  9. Will definitely check this out. Thanks for sharing!

  10. I bet mine won't taste as gooD!

  11. Is there a way you could add nutritional information, including calorie count and micronutrients? (IE x protein, x carbs, x fiber, x sugar)

  12. Sure but you wont like it :P

    Note that this is for the complete dish, not just the sauce. So 5oz chicken, 10oz of cooked pasta, and 5 ounces of bell peppers and onion.
