Spaghetti | Butter | Olive Oil Garlic | Red Pepper Flakes | Lemon Jumbo Shrimp | Old Bay Seasoning White Wine | Parmesan Cheese Italian-Style Diced Tomatoes Salt & Black Pepper Basil & Parsley

Cook the Pasta

– Bring a large pot of generously salted water to boil. Cook pasta just until almost al-dente (a minute shy of package instructions for al dente.) Drain well and toss with a sprinkle or two of olive oil to prevent sticking (only need to do this if pasta is done before the shrimp/sauce mixture.)

While Pasta is Cooking

– While pasta is cooking: Heat 3 TB olive oil and 1 TB butter in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook 3 minutes, stirring. Add garlic and red pepper flakes, stirring 1 minute.

Toss Old Bay with Shrimp

 - Be sure excess moisture has been dried off shrimp first. Add to skillet and stir 2 minutes or just until shrimp turns opaque. Do not over-cook the shrimp. Transfer shrimp mixture to a bowl; keep warm.

Add Other Ingredients

– Add wine, lemon juice, and diced tomatoes with juices to skillet. Bring to a boil. Add remaining 1 TB olive oil and 3 TB butter, stirring to combine well. Return shrimp mixture to skillet and stir to combine.

– Add cooked pasta, basil, and parsley to combine. Add kosher salt (approx 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp) and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Serve immediately, sprinkled with freshly grated parmesan.
