Shrimp Scampi

After I called my mom to wish her Happy Birthday, I asked her what she had for dinner. She said "Shrimp Scampi". I had no idea what that was, to be honest. So when lunch time came around today and there was nothing in the house, I thought hmm, well what about Shrimp Scampi? And that is what I made!

1. Chop up 1 med. onion and saute in a pan with 2 Tbs olive oil. Cook about

2. While that is cooking in a pot starting boiling water for your pasta noodles.

3. Chop up 3 cloves of garlic and add to onions, cooking about 1min.

4. Add in about 20 shrimps let cook 1-2mins.

5. Add in 10oz Angel Hair Pasta (I only had thing spaghetti noodles, still yummy!)

6. Measure out salt & pepper, 1/2 cup white wine, 1 stick butter (or margarine), you can also add in about 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper for an extra kick!

7. Add to shrimp and onion mixture. Let this simmer until all ingredients are well blended.

8. Place a plentiful amount of pasta and smother with shrimp and buttery sauce!

♥ Since we are onion haters I cooked my onions until all gross oniony flavor was long gone! ♥
