  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add pasta, and cook until al dente. Drain pasta, and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add most of the garlic, keeping some for later. Coat the garlic completely with butter. Do not let the garlic brown. Add shrimp, and toss to coat. Immediately remove pan from heat; shrimp will not be cooked yet.
  4. Sprinkle the shrimp with breadcrumbs (enough to coat the shrimp), and transfer the entire mixture to a medium casserole dish. Pour wine and the lemon juice over the shrimp. Cover, and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove cover, and bake an additional 5 minutes.
  6. In a small saucepan heat olive oil with remaining garlic. Toss the pasta with the olive oil and garlic mixture. Serve the shrimp over the pasta with additional lemon slices on the side.

This was awesome! I doubled the shrimp since my husband loves it, added a little bit more butter, but kept the crumbs the same. I substituted 1/2c chicken broth for the wine. I had about 20 c...

Very good! I used frozen med. shrimp already cooked; Italian breadcrumbs and light marg. Cut back a little on the lemon juice. Very tasty and will make again! Even my seafood-hating hubby li...

This dish was delicous. It was quick and easy to prepare, which was great after a long day of work. I did tweak the recipe a little bit. Instead of using the bread crumbs, I used a Tbsp. of corn...

The flavor and aroma of this dish were fabulous!! I would make half the pasta next time or double the shrimp and sauce. I only used about 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs and that was enough. I was gla...

Great recipe, I use precooked frozen shrimp, defrosted. Works great.

I make this all the time at our house. The only thing that I do differently is crush the garlic instead of mincing...and take it out of the butter sauce when it is a little brown. Then I don't...
