Shrimp Scampi Pasta

Created by Jenn's Food Journey

Ingredients:
10oz angel hair pasta
1/2 lb (31/40 count) shrimp (I used frozen shrimp, defrosted and tails removed)
Lemon pepper seasoning (to taste - I used about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon)
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 jalapeno, thinly sliced or chopped
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup white wine
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 lemon, juiced and zested
fresh chopped parsley
grated parmesan cheese

Directions:

Place the shrimp in a bowl and season with lemon pepper seasoning; set aside.  Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.

In a skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.  Add the jalapeno and allow to cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally (you might need to turn down the heat, don't let it burn).  Add the garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper and cook for 1 minute.  Slowly add the white wine.  Add the butter and lemon juice and stir to combine everything.  Add the shrimp, tossing to coat.  Add drained pasta to the skillet and toss to coat.  Sprinkle in parsley and parmesan if desired.  Serve immediately.  Enjoy!
