INGREDIENTS:

8 1/4-inch medium shrimp
3 large garlic cloves
1/2 tsp. salt and pepper
6 tablespoons olive oil
6 tablespoons butter
1 bunch of broccoli, cut up
8 oz. angel hair

DIRECTIONS:

Marinade:

Toss together: Shrimp, garlic, salt and pepper, 4 tablespoons olive oil. Marinate the shrimp for 3 hours in the refrigerator.

After marinating, remove the garlic pieces. Add 3 tablespoons butter.

Pasta:

In a large saucepan, add broccoli and bring to a boil. Drain and return to saucepan; cover.
Editor’s Note: Do not overcook. Broccoli will continue to cook after removed from heat. It should be a bright green color – emerald green, not olive green. Olive green indicates the broccoli has overcooked.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and butter. Add shrimp and saute, tossing often.

Cook pasta. Drain and toss everything together. Serve.
