My wife and I LOVE garlic, and garlic and shrimp go so well together that I just had to come up with this one; goes great with a tossed salad and crusty French bread. Although Parmesan with shrimp isn't authentic, it goes well with this because of all the garlic.

The shrimp was good, the noodles weren't. i made shrimp sandwiches with ritz crackers.
We liked this a lot but I think I would add some salt and pepper and a touch more of the cayenne next time. I also wasn't sure when to add the basil so I added it with the shrimp and parsley. I used dried parsley so I used a little less. We all added the extra parmesan cheese! Thanks for a nice dinner!
