Default Shrimp Scampi

I just felt like sharing what I made for dinner.

The color is off in the picture though from the jpeg conversion but you still get the idea.

Looks delish! Have you tried it with linguine? Supposedly the shape/size of the noodle affects the ability (and amount) of the sauce to cling to the noodle (more surface area on thinner noodles). IIRC, thinner sauces (like scampi) typ use thinner noodles (like linguine) and thicker sauces (like alfredo) get thicker noodles (like fett). But it's really all personal preference. At home I typ just use whatever is in the pantry unless it's Fettucine Alfredo (one of my favorite things!), that must use fett.

Yeah, this wasn't really planned. I just came home and pretty much threw it together so it got whatever pasta I had. I always have fettucine on hand since I make a lot of alfredo too. If I had the day off I would have actually probably made the noodles too then I could have had them thinner.

Fett Alfredo, for something sooooo simple it is sofa king good. 3 ingredients plus the fett, that's it!

It is easy as hell and delicious. I use a little bit of flour for a roux but its still only 4 ingredients. I think a child could do it. Hardest part is grating the parm.

If you want it thicker just add more parm. And yes, agree on the grated parm (and it should be grated as fine as possible imo).

I used to just use a ton of parm but since I started using good parm-reg it doesn't take nearly as much to get the flavor where I want it and its not quite thick enough.

Yea, I usually go middle of the road on the parm. I always get sticker shock with the really good stuff!

I used to until I realized that I don't need to completly cover stuff like I was used to doing. To me I probably save money buying the better stuff because I use much less of it.
