  • 1/2 box of spaghetti or linguine

  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt

  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley
  • Lemon juice, half of a lemon
  • Parmesan cheese


  • Make the pasta according to directions
  • In a large skillet, melt butter with olive oil. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute
  • Add wine, salt, red pepper flakes, and plenty of black pepper. Bring to a simmer and let the wine reduce by half, about 2 minutes.
  • Add shrimp and saute until they just turn pink (2-4 min depending upon their size)
  • Stir in the parsley and lemon juice and serve over pasta or accompanied by crusty bread.


  • Save some of the starchy pasta water to help thicken up the sauce when combining
