Linguini with Shrimp

This pasta dish is so light and delicious. It's not a typical pasta dish in that it doesn't feel heavy like most. The lemon juice and parsley give it a very fresh taste. It is very simple to make and ready in about 10 minutes. I served it with Ceasar salad and garlic toast.
What You'll Need:
1 lb Linguini
1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. garlic, minced
1/4 cup white wine
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
What You'll Do:
Cook linguini to al dente.
Heat oil and butter in a pan. Sautee garlic making sure that it doesn't brown. Add white wine and simmer for about 2 minutes. Place shrimp in sauce and cook until pink, about 5 minutes. Take off heat and add lemon juice and parsley. Mix linguini with shrimp and sauce. Shave some fresh parmesean on top and add a splash of EVOO if desired.
