Kosher salt
12 oz. linguine
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 cloves garlic, finely grated
Grated zest of 1 lemon, plus wedges for serving
1 tbsp. fresh oregano, finely chopped
tsp. red pepper flakes
cup dry white wine
4 tbsp. unsalted butter
4 cups baby arugula (about 2 ounces)
cup grated parmesan cheese

Preheat a grill to medium. Lay out four 20-inch sheets of heavy-duty foil on a work surface. Bring 6 cups salted water to a boil in a large deep skillet. Add the linguine to the boiling water and cook, stirring occasionally, until pliable but not cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl using tongs, add 1 tbsp. olive oil and toss well. Add cup of the cooking water and toss well (reserve the remaining cooking water). Add the shrimp, garlic, lemon zest, oregano, red pepper flakes and the remaining 1 tbsp. olive oil; season with salt and toss. Divide the pasta mixture among the foil sheets. Drizzle evenly with the wine and cup more pasta cooking water total. Top each with 1 tbsp. butter. Bring the two short ends of the foil together and fold twice; fold in the sides to seal, leaving a little room for steam to circulate. Grill the packets seam-side up until puffed and the shrimp and pasta are fully cooked, 10 to 12 minutes. Carefully open the packets and add the arugula; toss to wilt slightly. Sprinkle with the parmesan and serve with lemon wedges.
