What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound uncooked linguine
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, with tails left on
  • 12 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
What To Do:
  1. Cook linguine according to package directions; drain and cover to keep warm.
     
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add shrimp, garlic, salt, and pepper, and saute 2 to 3 minutes, until shrimp turn pink and are cooked through.
