Garlic Shrimp with Pasta

This simple recipe can be whipped up no time flat!  Plus, it is a great way to use up some pasta from our food storage.


8oz {small} frozen shrimp
1 lb Bow tie noodles
4-8 garlic cloves, according to personal taste, minced
3 Tablespoons butter {I Looooove butter}
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning pepper
2 Packets of red pepper flakes


Boil pasta in water till tender, save 1/2 cup of pasta water for use later. Cook according to package directions.  When finished, drain and set aside.
While pasta is boiling, wash shrimp.
Melt butter over medium heat. Add shrimp.
Cook shrimp about 3 minutes. Then add garlic.
Cook 5-7 min., add oil. Continue to stir till shrimp is pink and your house smells divine.
Add pasta to skillet. Add seasonings. Add just enough saved pasta water {start with adding 1/4 of it then work up from there}.
Keep tossing all ingredients around in skillet till all is incorporated and hot.

*Serve with a loaf of crusty french bread and butter.  Enjoy!
