No Thought Scampi



So last night I wanted to have some pasta for dinner. After watching Paula Deen talk about shrimp and crab au gratin, I also wanted some seafood. What's the easy seafood and pasta to make?.... shrimp and angel hair in a scampi sauce.
I even made it from scratch without using a recipe. I just used all the things that I "thought" would be in the sauce. It didn't turn out to bad.

Recipe:
Shrimp (hint: do not buy shrimp w/the shells still on - this was a pain in the ?)
Angel hair pasta
White wine (any white wine you drink is the best kind to use)
Grape tomatoes
Green onions
Shallots
Butter
Salt
Pepper

Prepare shrimp with seasoning - make sure they're all devaned, etc.
Cook pasta; drain and set aside.
Melt butter in pan. Add shallot until soften. Season with salt and pepper. Add white wine, cook for 5 minutes. Add shrimp to pan; cook 2 minutes. Add pasta and tomatoes to pan. Pasta will soak up all of the juices. Top with diced green onion. Add a glass of WINE and you're doing FINE!
