Shrimp Scampi Pasta

This was delicious and so simple to put together.  I love that the sauce is so light and doesn't weigh you down like an Alfredo.  Definitely a new one for my rotation!

  • 1/2 pound angel hair pasta
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:  Boil noodles according to package.  In a large skillet saute shrimp in olive oil ,1/2 lemon juice and garlic.  Cook until shrimp is pink and set aside.  In same skillet stir in chicken broth, butter, red pepper, parmesan and remaining lemon juice until cheese is melted.  Stir in pasta and top with shrimp, salt, and pepper.
