1. Garlic Butter Shrimp Pasta Recipe

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces linguine or fettuccine pasta
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (or chicken broth)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the pasta and set it aside.

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly golden.

Add the shrimp to the skillet and sauté for 2-3 minutes, or until the shrimp are starting to turn pink and curl.

Pour in the white wine (or chicken broth) and let it simmer for 1 minute, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

Stir in the heavy cream and lemon juice, and continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly and the shrimp are fully cooked.

Add the cooked pasta to the skillet and toss everything together to coat the noodles in the garlic butter sauce.

Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the grated Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh parsley.

Season the Garlic Butter Shrimp Pasta with salt and black pepper to taste.

Serve the Garlic Butter Shrimp Pasta immediately, garnished with additional parsley if desired.

This dish is perfect for a romantic date night, a family gathering, or simply as a comforting weeknight meal. The richness of the sauce is balanced by the brightness of the lemon juice and the freshness of the parsley, creating a truly harmonious flavor profile.
