Garlic Shrimp Scampi

Garlic Shrimp Scampi

This is one of the simplest, fastest and tastiest meals you can make. It's a great go-to week night meal because it's just so fast, easy and fresh.  It's definitely one of our favorites, because all of my kids love shrimp.  Serve with some crusty bread.

12 ounces linguine
1-2 lbs. shrimp, raw, peeled and deveined 
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup butter
4 garlic cloves minced
pinch red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons dried parsley
1 cup pasta water
Salt and fresh ground pepper
Parmesan cheese

Fill large pot with water.  Add a little salt and olive oil. Bring to a boil and cook linguine according to package directions, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid to add to sauce.  In large skillet combine butter, olive oil and pasta water.  Add garlic, shrimp, parsley and red pepper flakes to skillet. Season with salt and pepper.  Sauté for a few minutes until shrimp are cooked through. Serve sauce over pasta and garnish with Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.
