Lemony Shrimp Scampi

Quick post tonight...

One of my favorite meals to make or order is Shrimp Scampi. I've been craving pasta for the past few days so I whipped this up tonight... it is one of my specialties.


 - Barilla Protein Plus Pasta

- Few Tbs or so of Extra virgin o/o 

- 1.5 tsp or so of Butter

- 1/2 Lemon

- 2 cloves or so of Garlic

- Peeled, de-veined uncooked Shrimp

- Tbs or so of capers

- Crushed Red Pepper & Salt

- Parmesan cheese

First, bring salted water to a boil and add your pasta.

Over low-medium heat, add o/o, butter then garlic, crushed red pepper, lemon juice and salt to a saute pan.


When the pasta is a few minutes from being done.  Add the capers and then the shrimp to the pan.  They only take a couple/few minutes per side. Once they are almost completely opaque... add the hot pasta (this will finish off the cooking process of the shrimp).


Toss, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Eat & enjoy.


Tomorrow is Thursday - thank goodness! Have a fabbbulous weekend. xo
