Shrimp Italiano over Linguine

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 15 mins

This comes from an old recipe book of mine, I think I have had it 15-20 years. It is called 30 minute meals. The ingredients may seem a little odd, but this is excellent. I have yet to have one person served not like it. Usually they go home with a recipe card as well.

It's true, the ingredients do seem a bit odd, but they totally work! This is a fantastic, quick meal. It is already a favorite and will be in our regular meal rotation. I already want to make it again tomorrow night!

This was quick, easy and very tasty, the only departure was to cut back (i used 1/2) the amount of olive oil and butter.
