8 Ounces Fettuccine
1 Pound Medium Shrimp, Peeled and Deveined
Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to Taste
8 Tablespoons (1 Stick) Unsalted Butter, Divided
4 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1/2 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
1/2 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
2 Cups Baby Arugula
1/4 Cup Freshly Grated Parmesan
2 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Parsley Leaves

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.

Season shrimp with salt and pepper, to taste; set aside.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic, oregano and red pepper flakes, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.

Add shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until pink, about 2-3 minutes; set aside.

Melt remaining 6 tablespoons butter in the skillet. Stir in pasta, arugula and Parmesan until arugula begins to wilt, about 2 minutes. Stir in shrimp.

Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
