Shrimp Scampi

Simple, healthy dinner with basic ingredients sautéed together. Pairs perfectly with a slightly sweet white wine on a hot day. All ingredients are eyeballed and added to taste - I do not measure these out.


Small shrimp (peeled, deveined)

Barilla Plus Angel Hair Pasta

Extra virgin olive oil



White wine


Lemon juice

Red pepper flakes





In a pot, get your pasta started. The shrimp take almost no time to cook. Cook your pasta per package instructions (don't forget to salt water), before the pasta is completely cooked you will drop in the shrimp pan with a small amount of cooking water to finish cooking.


Chop garlic, shallot, parsley. Set parsley aside.

Drizzle pan with extra virgin olive oil

Set heat to med-low and drop in garlic, shallots and shrimp

Add salt, pepper, red pepper flakes

Sautee quickly for about a minute

Add small amount of white wine and juice of 1/2 a lemon to pan and sautee for another couple of minutes

Drop in almost finished pasta and finish cooking both pasta and shrimp

Remove from heat immediately

Garnish with fresh parsley and remaining lemon juice - then serve
