Lemon Pepper Shrimp Linguine Recipe

Shrimp linguine flavored with fresh lemon, pepper and garlic. Quick, easy and delicious....and a very elegant dinner! Suitable for company with very little effort! 
**I usually use a 1 lb. box of pasta and double the amounts of other ingredients, sometimes adding some frozen spinach and frozen red/green pepper and onions to make a one-dish meal.  : )

Please forgive the fact that those are spaghetti noodles pictured....I was apparently out of linguine noodles when I took this pic ; )

Ingredients :

1 (9 ounce) packages fresh or dried linguine (I use whole wheat - Barilla, Healthy Harvest, or Publix brand)
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup white wine (or additional chicken broth)
1 lemons, juice of
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 lb fresh or frozen shrimp
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried basil shredded parmesan cheese


Thaw frozen shrimp in fridge or run under cold water.

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add linguine, and cook according to package; drain.

While linguine is cooking, heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, and saute garlic about 1 minute. Mix in chicken broth, wine (or additional chicken broth), lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat, and simmer until liquid is reduced by about 1/2.

Mix shrimp, butter, parsley, and basil (also add frozen spinach/peppers/onions if desired - whatever amount you prefer) into the saucepan. Cook until shrimp is pink. Stir in the cooked linguine, and continue cooking 2 minutes, until well coated. Sprinkle with parmesan and serve.

Serves 4.

Try serving with Garlic Cheese Biscuits!!  Your taste buds will thank you!  ; )
