  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup scallions, thinly sliced

Heat olive oil in large sauce pan and cook scallions and garlic until fragrant. Add lemon juice and pepper and stir to combine. Add tomatoes and cook 2 minutes. Add shrimp and stir well to coat. Slowly stir in the cream. Cover pan and keep warm.

Cook the pasta until al dente. Add the 2 tablespoons cooking water to the shrimp, then drain the pasta and add to saute pan. Reheat everything slowly until hot. DO NOT serve this dish with cheese; that is forbidden among Italian chefs, but this is America. The choice is yours.
