Lemon Pasta with Roasted Shrimp

from the beautiful kitchen of Ina Garten


2 pounds (17 to 21 count) shrimp,
peeled and deveined
Good olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pound angel hair pasta
½ stick unsalted butter, melted
2 lemons, zested and juiced
Salt and pepper


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the shrimp on a sheet pan with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Toss well, spread them in 1 layer, and roast for 6 to 8 minutes, just until they're pink and cooked through.

Meanwhile, drizzle some olive oil in a large pot of boiling salted water, add the angel hair, and cook al dente, about 3 minutes.

Drain the pasta, reserving some of the cooking liquid.

Quickly toss the angel hair with the melted butter, 1/4 cup olive oil, the lemon zest, lemon juice, 2 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon pepper and about 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking liquid.

Add the shrimp and serve hot.
