  • 1/3 bunch fresh flat leaf parsley roughly chopped


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  • In a large skillet, heat the remaining olive oil and the butter over medium heat until the butter melts. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add the pasta to the pan along with the zest and juice of the lemons, the parsley and red pepper flakes. Stir in some of the reserved pasta cooking water until saucy. Add the shrimp and toss. Season to taste with more salt and pepper if desired.
