Linguine with lemon-garlic shrimps.

Not in the mood to cook an elaborate dish, so pasta it is. We were so hungry we did not take a picture tonight, sorry….



¼ pound dried linguine

1 lemon

1 pound extra-large shrimp, peeled and deveined

Freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoon unsalted butter

3 medium cloves garlic, thinly sliced

1/8 crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

¼ cup dry white wine

½ mascarpone cheese

1 tablespoons thinly sliced chives

Bring a large pot of salted water and cook the pasta according to the package direction until al dente. Reserve about ¾ cup of the cooking water and then drain the pasta.

Meanwhile, finely grate 1 ¼ teaspoon of zest from the lemon and squeeze 2 tablespoons of juice. Toss the shrimp with ½ teaspoon of the zest and ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper. In a 12 inch skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat until the foam subsides. Add the garlic and the red pepper flakes and cook until the garlic just begins to brown, about 1 minute. Add the shrimp and cook until just opaque, about 3 minutes. Add the wine and lemon juice, bring to a boil, and cook until slightly reduced, 1 minute.

Add the drained pasta, mascarpone and ½ cup of the cooking water as needed, until the pasta and the shrimp are coated and the sauce looks creamy. Remove from the heat. Toss the remaining ¾ teaspoon lemon zest and the chives. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
