Shrimp Scampi

This pasta dish is one that I do when I am short on time.  It is super easy but will be sure to wow whomever you serve it to.  I hope you enjoy it!

1 lb. pasta (your choice)
2 TBS olive oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb. raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
6 TBS butter
6 TBS chicken broth
1/2 tsp black pepper
6 TBS freshly grated Parmesan cheese
4 TBS fresh chopped parsley

Prepare pasta al dente as directed on the box.  While pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.  When oil is hot add garlic and cook over medium heat for about 1-2 minutes.  Add shrimp to skillet and cook for about 2 minutes stirring frequently.  Add 3 TBS of butter and chicken broth to the skillet .  Saute about 2 more minutes or until shrimp turns pink.  

When your pasta is done, drain well and add to your shrimp mixture.  Add the remaining butter and black pepper.  Mix gently.  Top with your freshly grated Parmesan cheese and parley.  Serve immediately.
