Recipe provided by Lois Bendoris from the Heroes In Transition cookbook, Heroes In Transition, Recipes and Remembrances.


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 large cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • ½ cup chopped Italian (flat leaf) parsley
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 pinches dried hot red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 1 box angel hair pasta


  1. Cook pasta according to directions.
  2. Meanwhile heat butter and oil in heavy skillet over medium heat until foam subsides. Add garlic, parsley, lemon juice, wine, pepper flakes, and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer three minutes. Add shrimp to skillet and cook, stirring frequently, for five to six minutes, until shrimp are pink.
  3. Remove from heat. Place shrimp over cooked pasta. Sprinkle with more chopped parsley. I also serve with a bowl of grated Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

* Before beginning to cook, get all ingredients ready. It will help move along the cooking process and the shrimp and pasta will be done at the same time.
