A nice hot oven does the work for you in this snappy version of pasta with shrimp. Butter, lemon juice, garlic and shrimp go for a five-minute bake with a nice sprinkling of parsley. Toss with hot linguini and you're ready to eat!
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 (12 ounce) package linguini pasta
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place the butter or margarine in 9x13 inch glass baking dish, and place in oven until butter melts.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain, and transfer to a large serving bowl.
Stir the shrimp, garlic, and lemon juice into the melted butter. Return dish to oven. Bake for 3 minutes. Remove from the oven, and mix in parsley; continue baking until shrimp are opaque, about 2 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper.
Spoon the shrimp and butter sauce over the linguini, and toss to coat the pasta. Serve immediately.
