Risa's Lemon Parmesan Angel Hair Recipe
a great easy pasta and shrimp recipe for the entire family
lb peeled and deveined shrimp
oz dry angel hair pasta
tbs olive oil
tbs unsalted butter
salt and freshly ground black pepper
clove garlic, minced
tsp lemon zest
tbs fresh lemon juice
tbs chopped fresh basil
tbs chopped fresh parsley
cup finely shredded parmesan
cup unsalted butter
cup packed dark brown sugar
Cook pasta in salted water according to directions listed on package (keep in mind it will only take about 4 minutes so I recommend adding the pasta to water when you begin cooking the shrimp), reserve 1/2 cup pasta water before draining.
In a large skillet, heat olive and butter over medium-high heat. Add shrimp (you can remove tails first if desired), season with salt and pepper and saute 2 minutes, then add garlic and saute until shrimp has cooked through, about 2 minutes longer.
Toss drained pasta in with shrimp along with 1/3 cup reserved pasta water, lemon zest and lemon juice. Add more water 1 Tbsp at a time as needed. Toss in 2 Tbsp of each parsley and basil, then sprinkle top with parmesan cheese and remaining 1 Tbsp of each parsley and basil. Serve warm.
