One of our favorite dishes is Garlic Scampi and Linguine.  So easy, but so delicious.  I thought I'd share it with you.

Start by boiling the pasta in a large pot of salted water.

In another saucepan, melt butter over low heat, add white wine, fresh grated parmesean cheese, garlic, fresh parsley, and salt and pepper.

You can use any sort of white wine you wish.  I had this trocken and it worked just fine.

Cook 3 - 5 minutes.

Add the scampi and cook for another 3-4 minutes and voila!  What could be easier? 

It is the sort of dish you can serve to unexpected company and it only takes minutes, yet looks like you've been cooking for hours.

Here is the final presentation with a bottle of white.  Really, all you need for a perfect dinner!



  • 1 pound uncooked linguine or plain pasta
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons white wine
  • 2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined


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.

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.

3.Increase heat to medium high and add shrimp to skillet; cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until shrimp begins to turn pink. Do not overcook.

4.Divide pasta into portions and spoon sauce on top; garnish with Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley, if desired.
