Easy Shrimp Scampi with Basil
Create a quick meal around two of the season's favorite ingredients – fresh basil and succulent shrimp. Remember to reserve a cup of pasta cooking water before you drain the cooked linguine. The starchy, salty liquid brings the wine, butter, and lemon juice together into a bright and silky sauce. This recipe moves quickly, so have all the ingredients chopped, measured, and available before you get started. Substitute chicken stock for the wine, if desired.
