Shrimp and Angel Hair Pasta

“Easy, healthy, and FAST. This is a great weeknight dinner adapted from Woman's Day magazine, although its elegant enough for a dinner party. Just make sure to do your prep work ahead of time, since this comes together quickly. Great served with peas/onions side dish.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions and drain.
  2. While pasta cooks, heat one tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, shrimp (if using uncooked shrimp), and 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper. Saute two minutes or until shrimp are barely pink and/or garlic is soft.
  3. Add broth and crushed red pepper. Increase heat to high.
  4. Add cooked shrimp (if not using uncooked shrimp in step 2).
  5. Cook on high heat for 2-3 minutes (just one minute if you used uncooked shrimp earlier), until shrimp are warmed through.
  6. Stir in lemon peel and juice.
  7. Put the pasta in a serving bowl, add the remaining tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  8. Add the shrimp mixture, parsley, and cheese (gradually so as not to clump up the cheese). Toss to mix and serve immediately.
