Serves: 4

Ingredients

8 oz. linguine
1 lb shrimp, peeled and divided
2 tablespoons olive oil
7 to 8 cloves garlic, minced
2/3 cup white wine
1/2 onion, minced
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes [I use the same amount of Paul Prudhomme’s Seafood Magic]

Method

Prepare linguine according to directions on package.
In large skillet heat olive oil. Add garlic, onion, and red pepper and saute until soft. Add shrimp and cook until firm, about 5 minutes. Remove shrimp. Add wine to skillet and bring to a simmer. Return Shrimp to the pan briefly and remove. Add parsley. Let simmer gently. When the sauce had reduce to about ½, add the cooked pasta to the pan and mix.

To keep everything fair, allocate the shrimp to the each person after you have plated the pasta.

Note: If you use ½ the quantity of Shrimp and pasta and keep everything else the same, it makes a wonderful garlicky dinner for 2.
