Garlic Shrimp Pasta



  • 1 lb medium shrimp, deveined and tails removed
  • 1 lb spaghetti noodles (more or less, depending on family size)
  • 6 -8 garlic cloves, according to personal taste, minced
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • olive oil (3 drizzles)
  • italian seasoning
  • fresh ground pepper
  • red pepper flakes
  • salt
  • herbs (according to taste)


How to Make It

  • 1 Boil pasta in water till tender, save 1 cup of pasta water for use later. I always put some oil, salt, and fresh herbs in with my pasta when I boil it. Drain and set aside when done.
  • 2 While pasta is boiling, wash shrimp.
  • 3 Melt butter over medium heat. Add shrimp.
  • 4 Let cook till a little pink and starting to curl. Then add garlic.
  • 5 Cook 5-7 min., add oil. Continue to stir till shrimp is pink and curled.
  • 6 Add pasta to skillet. Add seasonings. Add just enough saved pasta water till it is not dry but not swimming in liquid either. Depending on amount of pasta this requires 1/2 the cup or all of it. Start with adding 1/4 of it then work up from there.
  • 7 Keep tossing all ingredients around in skillet till all is incorporated and hot.
