Ingredients
  • ¼ cup olive oil (I often add in more)
  • 1 lb peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 1 zucchini, chopped

  • juice of ½ lemon (or more if you like lemon!)
  • 5 TBsp butter
  • 1 lb angel hair pasta (usually one box)

Instructions
  1. Bring a 6 qt pot of water to boil.
  2. In the meantime, heal oil in large skillet over high heat, then sauté shrimp, stirring once or twice, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. Add garlic to remaining oil in skillet along with red pepper flakes, cooking wine, salt, pepper and cook over medium heat for about 1 minute. Add butter to skillet, stir until melted.
  4. Sauté chopped veggies in garlic mixture for about 2-3 minutes or until slightly tender.
  5. Add shrimp back to skillet, squeeze in lemon juice. Turn off the heat and cover the skillet.
  6. Cook pasta in boiling water until tender, about 3 minutes. Drain pasta in colander, reserving some of the pasta-cooking water.
