Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook pasta according to pkg directions. Combine olive oil, juice of 1/2 a lemon, salt & pepper. Add shrimp & turn to coat. Place on baking sheet & roast 5-6 min (depending on size of shrimp). Drizzle remaining lemon juice over shrimp & pasta.
These are two recipes I've been wanting to try for a while. I am not a seafood lover...I repeat...I do not like seafood. However, I have a child who would do absolutely anything for shrimp. My mom used to tell me I really should cook things (aka...seafood, mushrooms, peppers...) for my kids, whether I liked to eat it or not. OK mom, I listened...finally. Well, it was a hit. The members of this house that ate it, loved it! The rest of us had the linguine with asparagus. YUM! I got the basic idea for this recipe from Giada De Laurentiis, but I tweaked it a little. Again, YUM! The roasted shrimp is another genius Barefoot Contessa recipe, I just added it to pasta & added the lemon juice.
