This Scampi dish is perfect for the summer months ahead and only takes minutes to prepare.
Olive Oil and Butter, 1/4 cup each
Fresh Garlic minced (3-4 cloves minced or about two teaspoons of chopped garlic from jar)
Medium Sweet Onion, chopped
Crushed Red Pepper, just a pinch or so depending on your style of heat
Dry White Wine (a little for you and a little for the sauce), about 1/4 cup for sauce
One Bunch fresh Basil chopped
Goat Cheese (about 1/8 to 1/4 cup)
Large Fresh Shrimp, cleaned, tail on, depending on the amount of people you’re serving (about 20-30 Lg shrimp)
Linguine, one box or fresh
Fresh Lemon, Sea Salt, Fresh Ground Pepper, season to taste (reserve lemon for garnish)
Prepare your pasta according to directions on the box, make sure you do not overcook, I like mine al dente (tender yet slightly firm in texture), drain and set aside.
Heat pan until hot but not smoking.
Add Olive Oil and Butter, Garlic, Onion, Crushed Red Pepper and Basil to pan and sauté until the Onion is tender.
Toss your pasta into the sauce season with salt and pepper to taste and sauté a couple minutes together stiring constantly so that the pasta can absorb the sauce and shrimp are cooked.
Top with fresh chopped parsley. Serve with crushed red pepper, lemon wedges, fresh parmigiano cheese and crusty baguette.
