Greek Shrimp Pasta

I cast remember where found the original recipe, I think i may have seen it on a Rachel Ray episode. In any matter, its awesome and super simple.

1.5 lbs peeled, devained shrimp (uncooked)
3 T butter
2 T lemon juice
1 handful calamata olives, chopped
4 roasted red peppers, chopped
1/2 head of garlic, minced
Red pepper flakes as desired
1/2 cup white wine
1 lb pasta – short like penne works best
1 c starchy cooking water from pasta reserved

Start boiling the water for the pasta as the rest can be made in the cooking time for that. It’s quick! Cook pasta to al dente and reserve 1 cup of the starchy cooking water just before you drain it to thicken the sauce.

Start melting the butter and the wine together while peeling the shrimp. Add the shrimp with some S+P and let one side cook. When you flip the shrimp add the remainder of the sauce ingredients holding the red peppers and olives for last. Add the starchy cooking water and drained pasta to the same pot that the sauce and stir and serve with Parmesan cheese.
