Shrimp Scampi and Linguini

Keep a bag of frozen shrimp in your freezer for a quick meal.

1.  Cook 1 pound of pasta in salted water.  Drain and save cooking water.

1. Defrost, dry, and salt/pepper about a pound of shrimp.  Heat 2 TBS of butter in hot pan and cook shrimp for 2 minutes on each side.  Set aside Shrimp.

2.  Heat 2 cloves of garlic in 2 TBS of EV olive oil, add juice from 1 lemon and 1/2 cup of white wine.  Let boil for 2-3 minutes.
Add red pepper flakes and parsley for flavor and color if desired.   I added some fresh spinach for color.

3.  Add pasta to shrimp with a little pasta water if needed.  Sprinkle with salt/pepper and a drop of EV olive oil for taste.  Top with parmesan cheese and enjoy!.

Add a salad for a complete meal! My 9 year old son said “I like the combinations, mom!”.
