Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb spaghetti or linguine
  • 6 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp parsley chopped
  • 1 lb uncooked shrimp deveined and tails removed, if necessary
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice (juice from about half of one lemon)
  • 1/2 cup freshly shredded parmesan
  • kosher salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Cook the spaghetti in well-salted boiling water per the package directions.

  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat.

  3. Add the olive oil, garlic, parsley, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

  4. Cook for about 2 minutes, until the garlic softens and just starts to turn golden.

  5. Add shrimp and cook, turning occasionally, for about 3-4 minutes, until the shrimp are almost cooked through.

  6. Add the white wine and lemon juice and stir to combine. Let the shrimp finish cooking for another 2 minutes or so.

  7. Add the parmesan cheese and stir until the cheese melts and the sauce begins to thicken. Serve immediately over the hot pasta — and with some crusty bread to mop up the sauce!
