Capellini Shrimp Scampi


Thin pasta with buttery garlic sauce and shrimps is one of my favorite Italian dishes. This dish is  fairly simple to make, but makes an elegant dinner.

16-20 large shrimps or prawns
7-8 garlic finely chopped
1/2 red onion sliced
1 red,yellow or orange bell pepper cut into strips
1/2 cup white wine
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 stick butter
1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 pound capellini cooked (or angel hair pasta)

Heat oil in a saute pan on medium heat.Season shrimps with salt and pepper.
Add the shrimp and quickly saute(in batches) until just starting to turn pink, but not cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.
Add Onions and bell peppers to the skillet and saute just until they begin to soften.
Add garlic and cook for another 30 seconds.
Add wine and cook for about 3-5 minutes.
Add cream.Let it simmer for another 3-5 minutes.
Add shrimps back to the pan and swirl in the rest of the butter.
Season with salt and add Parmesan cheese.
Toss the pasta with sauce and serve with Parmesan cheese.
