Our family has enjoyed this light yummy dish for a long time. We live in Florida where shrimp is readily available. This recipe is easy to prepare. Prep time below includes the 1/2 hour to marinate the shrimp ahead of time. You can use any type of pasta, we prefer angel hair. Enjoy:)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This shrimp and pasta recipe is not only easy and quick but delicious! It's proof that simple ingredients can sometimes make the best dishes. The delicate angel hair pasta and the buttery shrimp are the stars of this dish. Serve with a side salad and garlic bread for a dinner your whole family will love.

Note: After marinating the shrimp, there is not much marinade to discard. The butter hardens against the cool shrimp. But, that's OK. It adds more buttery goodness to the recipe. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
