Shrimp and Pasta....the BEST~!

I saw Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa, cooking a dish today and just had to try it.
Tonight, I made her Shrimp and Pasta and it was even better than it looked on the video I saw.

Cook one pound of a thin linguini or fettucini

Meanwhile, melt a half stick of butter in about one cup of olive oil....then throw in 1 1/2 minced cloves of garlic (or more) and sautee just for a bit, don't overcook the garlic!....throw in 1 pound of peeled/deveined shrimp and cook on both sides till pink.  Add about 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice and about 2 Tablespoons of fresh lemon rind can also add a pinch or more of red pepper flakes if you like.  And S&P, of course.

When the pasta's cooked, throw the drained pasta into the shrimp/butter/lemon pan and toss well to coat all the pasta...then throw in some minced fresh parsley and ENJOY!

This was DELICIOUS....I hope you enjoy the lemon flavors on the pasta...

You can also top it with a little Parmesan cheese....I don't go by that "no cheese with fish" rule...not in a dish with pasta.
