Ingredients:  
1 lb. package angel hair pasta

2 lb. medium shrimp, fresh or frozen, peeled and deveined
1 bulb fresh garlic, peeled and minced
salt and pepper
1 fresh lemon, halved
1 rounded teaspoon parsley flakes

Directions:
Directions:
Cook pasta according to package directions, adding a little salt and olive oil to boiling water. (Time it so you can start cooking shrimp right after putting pasta on to cook. Pasta and shrimp will finish cooking at about the same time.) Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When butter begins to sizzle, add well-drained shrimp. Add minced garlic, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until shrimp are pink and opaque (about 4 minutes). Remove from heat; squeeze juice of lemon half over shrimp. Cut remaining half lemon into slices or wedges. Drain cooked pasta. Cut remaining half stick butter into pieces and add to pasta, along with parsley. Toss, mixing well. Pour pasta onto a large serving platter, and top with garlic shrimp. Or, toss garlic shrimp into pasta and pour into a large serving bowl. Garnish with lemon slices or wedges. Serve immediately.
