Olive Garden Shrimp Scampi

Copycat Olive Garden Shrimp Scampi

Olive Garden Shrimp Scampi is such a classic Olive Garden recipe - it's buttery and garlicky! This copycat recipe of a classic Italian dish is one of my favorite dishes and it's such a delicious and light dinner - you'll love it!!!! We're also big asparagus fans and this is loaded with asparagus and sliced cherry tomatoes!
