  1. For the pasta, put a large pot of water on the stove to boil.
  2. When it has come to the boil, add a couple of tablespoons of salt and the linguini.
  3. Stir to make sure the pasta separates; cover.
  4. When the water returns to a boil, cook for about 6 to 8 minutes or until the pasta is not quite done.
  5. Drain the pasta reserving 1 cup of water.
  6. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter in 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat.
  7. Saute the shallots, garlic, and red pepper flakes (if using) until the shallots are translucent, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  8. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper; add them to the pan and cook until they have turned pink, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  9. Remove the shrimp from the pan; set aside and keep warm.
  10. Add wine and lemon juice and bring to a boil.
  11. Add 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons oil.
  12. When the butter has melted, return the shrimp to the pan along with the parsley and cooked pasta and reserved pasta water.
  13. Stir well and season with salt and pepper.
  14. Drizzle over a bit more olive oil and serve immediately.

Simple, flavorful, wonderful. I used whole wheat pasta and extra parsley. It's also great with peas or broccoli or asparagus tossed in the pasta water for the last few minutes, then stirred in with the noodles.

I thought it was pretty tasty but hubby tossed his after a few bites. Next time I would double the red pepper flakes and garlic (yeah I do love my garlic) and omit the pasta water. Was a little runny. But I'd make it again.

"DELICIOUS"!!!! Wonderful blend of ingredients giving superb flavor. I scaled this down to a hefty single serving and made as written omitting the red pepper flakes. Thanks for posting this great recipe, a keeper for sure. Made for Best of 2011 Cookbook Tag.
