Start out by cleaning the shrimp. I left this to the husband. But save the shells to make stock for later use!
Start cooking pasta while you work on the rest of the dish. With all your ingredients ready to go, this entire dish will cook in about 10 minutes, which is awesome for those nights when you don't feel like standing in the kitchen forever! Anyway, while your pasta is cooking, saute shrimp for a couple of minutes in olive oil. The shrimp will not be all the way cooked; you don't want to overcook them later on!
Remove shrimp and set aside. In the same pan, saute garlic and red pepper flakes for about a minute. Then add the lemon juice and white wine and reduce for a few minutes. (And I have to point out my new measuring cups that my friend just got me. Aren't they cute?!) Mix in butter and a spoonful of the pasta water.
Toss shrimp back in pan, remove from stove and add in drained pasta. Toss well with parsley, lemon zest, salt and pepper!
Now it's time to link up all of your creations!
Here are the rules:
1. You can link up as many posts as you'd like.
2. The post has to be made from scratch.
3. The post you link up MUST CONTAIN A RECIPE!
4. If you want to put my button somewhere, that'd be cool. You can grab the code for the Made From Scratch Tuesday button on the top right of my sidebar.
