2 lbs (17-21) shrimp, peeled and deveined
Good olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 lb angel hair pasta
1 Tbsp (1/2 stick) butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400.

Place shrimp on sheet pan with 1 Tbsp of olive oil, salt and pepper; toss well. Spread in 1 layer and roast for 6-8 minutes until just pink and cooked through.

Meanwhile, cook pasta as directed on box (about 4-5 minutes), reserve about 1/2 cup of cooking liquid. Toss with melted butter, 1/4 cup olive oil, lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper and the reserved cooking liquid.

NOTE: We used pre-cooked salad shrimp and added that to the butter mix at the very end to heat through. YUM!!
