Once you have mastered the 10 minute brown butter recipe from my last post, you can easily move on to this delicious brown butter with pasta dish.  The nutty flavor of the butter adds a new dimension to the pasta, which can be eaten alone if you wish with a dash of salty cheese.  This dish was made from shrimp flavored with wine and lemon juice. I store pasta and frozen shrimp at all times, so I may whip up dinner in a hurry. However fresh vegetables slightly blanched can be a wonderful substitute for a meatless meal. One of my favorite go to recipe. The sprinkling of parsley adds the freshness you need to brighten this plate.
