16 oz               Linguine (dry, uncooked)

4 tbsp             Butter (unsalted)

Cook pasta according to package instructions in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente. Drain and set aside. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat until sizzling. Add minced garlic and red pepper flakes and sauté garlic for one minute before adding wine. Cook mixture for approximately one minute. Carefully add shrimp then season with salt, pepper, and lemon zest. Cook shrimp for 5-7 minutes until shrimp are pink. Remove skillet from heat and stir in fresh lemon juice.

This recipe is full of flavor, but the leftovers also tastes great reheated the next day after the pasta absorbs more of the sauce.
