We bet you think this sounds fancy. We bet they'll think this tastes fancy, with its delicate lemon flavor. Well, that's the beauty of it - sounds and tastes fancy but needs no fancy work!

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound capellini (angel hair pasta)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for tossing
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound raw shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried dillweed
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • Black pepper to taste

What to Do

  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook capellini until just barely tender; drain, rinse and place in a large bowl. Toss capellini with a little olive oil to keep it from sticking together.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil and melt butter over medium heat; add shrimp and garlic and saute until shrimp just turns pink.
  3. Stir in lemon juice, basil, parsley, oregano, dillweed, and chicken broth; reduce heat and simmer until heated through.
  4. Pour shrimp mixture over capellini and toss gently until capellini is lightly coated. Season with pepper and serve.

Is the 3 1/2 cups of broth a mistake? Seems way too much liquid.

I agree. It sounds like that much broth would make it soupy ...

Can't wait to try it!!!!
