  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. Watch Now
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium low heat; add wine, cheese, garlic, parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer over low heat for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Watch Now
  3. Increase heat to medium high and add shrimp to saucepan; cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until shrimp begins to turn pink. Do not overcook. Watch Now
  4. Divide pasta into portions and spoon sauce on top; garnish with Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley, if desired. Watch Now


  • Editor's Note: If you saw this recipe in the "Vegetable Insurgency" article in the Jun/Jul/Aug 2015 issue of Allrecipes, we added 5 ounces of baby spinach to it. If you want to add more greens to this dish, add the spinach after you start cooking the shrimp. Then remove the pan from the heat so the spinach wilts and the shrimp don't overcook.

This was a bit dry. After seeing how dry it would be, I made an extra batch of sauce. I quadrupled (4X) the butter, wine, and parmesan. I only doubled the garlic. Make sure that the wine is a...
