    Stacky5's Note:

    This simple and straightforward pasta recipe can be whipped up on a moment's notice with pantry ingredients and shrimp -- just the thing for a busy week night supper. Olive oil plays a big role here, so use only the best extra virgin olive oil you can find. Recipe courtesy of a CooksRecipes e-mail I received. YUM!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the spaghetti and cook, stirring occasionally, until barely tender.

      While the pasta cooks, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large (12-inch) skillet over medium heat. Add the shrimp and cook for 1 minute. Add the capers and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally until the shrimps turn pink and firm, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice, parsley and season with salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Drain the spaghetti and return to the warmed pot. Add the shrimp and its sauce and toss, adding the remaining 3 tablespoons oil or more if you wish.
    4. 4
      Transfer to a large, warmed serving bowl.
    5. 5
      Garish with freshly grated parmegiano reggiano cheese. Serve immediately.

      This was very good. My adaptation was to add some yellow pepper a little white wine and some blanched broccoli just to add some extra flavors and colors, came out nicely.

      LOVED it! Very quick and easy, perfect for a lazy sunday afternoon! A lovely dish full of flavours with few simple ingredients! The only change I made was add in a pinch of crushed chilli flakes since we like a bit of a kick! And I used tagliatelle instead of spaghetti since that's what I had. I served it with garlic bread and everybody enjoyed it. Thank you, Stacky5, for sharing this wonderful recipe.. definitely will be making it again!
