It’s difficile to believe how quick and easy this delicious shrimp fettuccine can be made. Noodles are one of my favorite quick things to do when I’m tired and don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking. It is not only tasty, but also cooked quickly and without much effort.
The same can be said about shrimp, especially when they are already peeled. Shrimp cooks in minutes, and when you combine shrimp and pasta with butter and garlic, you’ve got a delicious, mouthwatering meal within minutes!

°1 clove garlic , minced
°⅛ teaspoon red chili pepper flake (use less if you don’t want the shrimp to be too spicy)
