Shrimp Scampi

I've never been a big fan of seafood, but I'm trying to broaden my horizons (and those of my daughter).   Here's an easy dish that takes under 20 minutes to  prepare.  It's tasty and looks great on a plate!

 You will need… 

• 1 pound peeled, large raw shrimp (31/35 count), deveined
• 1 (12-oz.) package angel hair pasta
• 1/2 cup butter
• 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
• 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
• 1 teaspoon salt-free Italian-herb seasoning
• 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
• 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
• 1/4 cup freshly grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
 • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley



1. Cook angel hair pasta according to package directions. Drain in a colander. Rinse with cold water to prevent from sticking. Set aside.

2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add onion and garlic, and sauté 3 to 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in Italian seasoning and Worcestershire sauce.

3. Reduce heat to medium. Add shrimp, and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink. Stir in lemon juice.

4. Toss shrimp mixture with pasta, and sprinkle with cheese and parsley. Serve immediately.

  1. As my children can attest, I'm not much of a cook but I'm trying to find some easy starter dishes to help me get "some" brownie points in their eyes. This one was definitely one that got me HUGE points. It was easy, tasty and best of all, my children loved it!
