  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add angel hair pasta and return pot to boil. Cook until al dente. Drain well.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt butter, saute garlic until tender, remove garlic and discard. Add shrimp and cook until colored pink. Stir in white wine. The bread crumbs are used as thickening, so stir in a little at a time until desired thickness is reached.

A very simple recipe for scampi Not at all enough Garlic and why would you discard it? Try using 7-10 cloves and mince1/4 cup of onion in the mix with some fresh parsley.
