DIRECTIONS

  • Boil a large pot of water and add a generous pinch of salt. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water.
  • While the pasta is cooking, heat a large saute pan and add the olive oil, swirling to coat the pan. Add the shrimp to the hot oil in a single layer. Sprinkle with the freshly ground pepper. When the shrimp looks pink and opaque (about 2 min), turn them over. Add the garlic and red pepper. Stir constantly for 1 - 2 minutes. Be careful not to burn the garlic or overcook the shrimp.
  • Add the lemon zest and white wine to the shrimp. Stir to reduce the wine slightly. Add the lemon juice, cooked pasta, and reserved pasta water to the pan. Toss.
  • Remove from heat, add the butter and the parsley and give it another toss. Taste and add any additional salt or pepper if needed before serving.
