I don’t usually cook much seafood because I don’t like it smelling up my house. Luckily, this didn’t, and it was delicious! You can easily double it for 4 people.

  1. Cook pasta in salted water according to package directions.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large heavy-bottomed pan, melt the butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic. Saute for 1-2 minutes. Add the shrimp, season with salt and pepper, and saute until the shrimp have just turned pink, about 5 minutes, stirring often. Transfer shrimp to a bowl.
