Shrimp Scampi & Pasta

Delicious shrimp sautéed in butter with a great combination of herbs and served with pasta. The pasta has a nice subtle flavor with parmesan cheese added instead of being smothered in sauce. We love shrimp so I added a full pound to this delicious meal, minus the two shrimp I had to taste test.
