Shrimp Scampi Fettuccine

Shrimp Scampi Fettucine

Shrimp Scampi is just one of those comfort meals that feels healthy and refreshing. The tangy lemon and succulent shrimp makes you forget about all the butter and carbs in the dish.

I made fresh pasta for this dish because why not. I love fresh pasta for so many reasons. It’s tender, chewy, and flavorful. If you’ve never made fresh homemade pasta, you are missing out. You’ll be amazed by how delicious it is compared to dried pasta from the store! For your first time it may be time consuming and messy, but by the third time you’re a pro.

Follow these easy steps for Homemade Pasta.

Shrimp Scampi is super quick to make; saute shrimp and garlic, deglaze with white wine and lemon juice, add butter, parmesan, and red pepper flake. Time! 15 minute process, at the most. If you’re not into making homemade pasta, grab fresh fettuccine from your deli refrigerated aisle in your local grocery store. Buitoni Fresh Fettuccine Noodles are my go to!

Wine Pairing Recommendation: You want something medium bodied with good acidity and fruit. This dish just screams for a white wine, try a Vermentino from Italy.
