DIRECTIONS

  • Heat a large pot of water to the boil, add 1 tsp salt and pasta (cooking time about 11 minutes), then start your sauce.
  • 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.
  • Put butter and olive oil into a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add the garlic when the butter melts.
  • Cook garlic, stirring constantly, until it becomes soft, but not browned at all, about 3-4 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are just done.
  • Add the pasta and Parmesan cheese to the shrimp pan and toss thoroughly.
