Shrimp Linguine

Shrimp linguine!! This is the food I cooked for blog today.  I like simplicity of this food, no more over powering with heavy tomato sauce. The whole dish is extremely refreshing with the taste of fresh lemon zest and its juice.  It is very easy and quick to prepare. My son doesn’t even like shrimp, but today he seemed to like it and ate it all. This was surprising for me.I hope you guys will enjoy the dish!
Yield: 4
Time :25 minutes
 pound pasta
1 pound shrimp
3 tablespoon of olive oil
3 big garlic cloves crushed
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1 lemon zest
1 lemon juice
1 ½ teaspoon of salt
½ teaspoon of black pepper
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dry chives ( I would recommend fresh)
1. Bring the large pot full of water to boil.  Boil pasta according the direction in the package.Drain the pasta and save 1/2 cup of the drained water.
2. Heat the olive oil in heavy skillet pan over medium heat.  Cook the crushed garlic for 1 minute, add shrimp to it. Cook the shrimp for 5 minutes. Do not overcook the shrimp otherwise it becomes rubbery. Add the linguine, salt, pepper, lemon jest, lemon juice, fresh thyme, salt, and pepper to it. Toss to combine and turn off the heat. Add red pepper flakes, dry chives and  the drained water to it. Serve it immediately.
