Buongiorno!

Shrimp scampi is a crowd pleaser, and even better, it's pretty easy to prepare!  In today's post, we're sharing a great recipe for this dish that's also a lighter dinner option for yourself and the family.  This recipe will make about 4 servings. Let's get cooking! 

What you'll need:
  • 1 lb. jumbo shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 1 lb. pasta of your choice (we love spaghetti or linguini)
  • 4 tbsp. Capa di Roma extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of one medium lemon
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • grated parmesan cheese (optional)
Now this is only a 2 step recipe!!

Step 1:  Boil a pot of water for your pasta and throw it in while you cook your shrimp.  In a medium skillet, heat your oil over medium heat and add all ingredients except the cheese.  Sautee all ingredients, stirring often, until the shrimp are pink.

Step 2: Combine with your pasta, drizzle a little more olive oil if desired, and sprinkle with cheese.  Buon appetito!
