    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat a large pot of water to the boil, add 1 tsp salt and pasta (cooking time about 11 minutes), then start your sauce.
    2. 2
      When pasta is done, usually at the most critical point of cooking the sauce, reserve 1/4 cup of pasta water, and drain the pasta.
    3. 3
      Put butter and olive oil into a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add the garlic when the butter melts.
    4. 4
      Cook garlic, stirring constantly, until it becomes soft, but not browned at all, about 3-4 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add shrimp and briefly stir into the oil, then add the parsley, stir again and add the wine, half the pasta water and a good grind of pepper.
    6. 6
      Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are just done.
    7. 7
      Add the pasta and Parmesan cheese to the shrimp pan and toss thoroughly.

      Easy to fix; other than peeling all those shrimp. Very light sauce (no heavy creams or butter). Probably pretty good for you too! My 2 year old even liked it...

      I wasn't crazy about the recipe, especially as is. My husband on the other hand said it was one of his favorites so I guess that means I will be making it again! I did however love how easy and quick it was to prepare and make. I added a can of black olives, and a large handful of cherry tomatoes to add more flavor. I also added about a tablespoon of mixed herbs such as rosemary, oregano and fennel. I also like that it was on the light side and didn't use much butter or oil!

      This is a popular request as an alternative to spaghetti with red sauce. I reduce the wine down and then add some more to the recipe....red pepper flakes for the adults.
