Shrimp Scampi Linguine Recipe

Shrimp Scampi Linguine
Shrimp scampi linguine combines classic shrimp scampi with linguine pasta. The shrimp and sauce are tossed with the noodles and parsley and then served. The sauce is a combination of butter, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. A little spice is added to this dish from crushed red pepper flakes. You can use whatever size shrimps you want for this recipe but I would recommend at least medium; I used extra-large shrimps. You will also want the shrimp to be peeled and deveined to save some time. You can serve this recipe with garlic bread. Enjoy.
