DIRECTIONS

  • Cook pasta according to package directions only until just al dente; drain; set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a large, heavy skillet (I love making this in my wok!). Add lemon zest, garlic, red pepper flakes, basil and oregano; saute over medium heat 2 minutes.
  • Add shrimp and saute until opaque, about 4 minutes. Note that shrimp should almost be fully cooked at this stage, but not completely, so don't overcook this step or shrimp will be tough.
  • Add parsley, green onions, salt and pepper, and cook 1 minute longer.
  • Stir in lemon juice and cook another minute, then add the cooked pasta and parmesan cheese; toss well and serve immediately.
  • Serve with additional parmesan cheese, if desired.
