DIRECTIONS

  • Boil pasta in water till tender, save 1 cup of pasta water for use later. I always put some oil, salt, and fresh herbs in with my pasta when I boil it. Drain and set aside when done.
  • While pasta is boiling, wash shrimp.
  • Melt butter over medium heat. Add shrimp.
  • Let cook till a little pink and starting to curl. Then add garlic.
  • Cook 5-7 min., add oil. Continue to stir till shrimp is pink and curled.
  • Add pasta to skillet. Add seasonings. Add just enough saved pasta water till it is not dry but not swimming in liquid either. Depending on amount of pasta this requires 1/2 the cup or all of it. Start with adding 1/4 of it then work up from there.
  • Keep tossing all ingredients around in skillet till all is incorporated and hot. Enjoy!
