Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb fettuccine pasta
  • 1 lb shrimp uncooked tails on or off
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine optional
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 cloves fresh garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • freshly cracked black pepper

Instructions

  • First, begin to cook Fettuccine according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, in a separate medium saucepan, add oil. When oil is getting hot, add minced fresh garlic and cook on medium heat for 30 seconds. Add white wine, shrimp, parsley, lemon juice and black pepper. Stir and cook for five minutes until shrimp becomes orange and alcohol cooks out. The steam will no longer have an alcoholic scent to it. Remove from heat.
  • When pasta is done cooking according to package directions (about 10 min), drain and stir it with the shrimp until the oil has coated the pasta. Garnish with more parsley leaves if desired.
