Ingredients

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 ounces linguine (about a 1/2-inch-wide handful)
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Red-pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • Fresh parsley leaves, for garnish

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small nonstick skillet, melt half the butter over medium. Add garlic and pinch of red-pepper flakes; cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Raise heat to medium-high; add wine.
