Why I Love This Recipe

This was delicious and so simple and fast. Adapted from Gourmet Magazine.


Ingredients You'll Need

1/4 cup olive oil

1 lb peeled and deveined large shrimp (raw; 20 to 25 per lb)

4 large garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon dried hot red-pepper flakes

1/2 cup dry white wine

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

5 tablespoons unsalted butter

4 oz thin spaghetti


Directions

Bring a 6- to 8-quart pot of salted water to a boil.


Meanwhile, heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté shrimp, turning over once, until just cooked through, about 2 minutes, and transfer with a slotted spoon to a large bowl. Add garlic to oil remaining in skillet along with red pepper flakes, wine, salt, and pepper and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, 1 minute. Add butter to skillet, stirring until melted, and stir in shrimp. Remove skillet from heat.


Cook pasta in boiling water until just tender, about 3 minutes. Reserve 1 cup pasta-cooking water, then drain pasta in a colander. Toss pasta well with shrimp mixture in skillet adding some of reserved cooking water if necessary to keep moist.
