Some people really like pepper flakes with this type of recipe, so if you like a more spicy flavor, try adding some. I prefer mine without, but that's just me. :)
This recipe is very similar to my linguine and clams recipe I got from my mother. It is a family favorite of mine, so if you don't have shrimp, you can always add some canned chopped clams to substitute.
