My husband loves shrimp so I created this simple pasta dish for him. Lemon zest adds freshness and I like to sprinkle the spaghetti with basil for color and taste.

  • While spaghetti is cooking, heat olive oil in a skillet over low heat. Add lemon zest and cook for 5 minutes. Strain olive oil through a sieve and return to the skillet. Add shrimp and garlic. Cook in the lemony oil, stirring occasionally, until shrimp turns pink, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Drain spaghetti, reserving about 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Add drained spaghetti, reserved cooking water, and basil to the skillet and mix well. Serve immediately.
