There's just something about the experience of eating a plate of noodles that makes you want more.
Shrimp with Lemon and Garlic Sauce over Pappardelle Pasta is one of the favorite Italian way of serving pappardelle. This sauce can also be used with any other fresh or dried broad noodles. Bear in mind that, other than during springtime when fresh English peas are at their peak of season, you are best off making this dish with frozen peas; look for a good brand of frozen petite peas, which should have excellent flavor and texture in the finished sauce.
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 4 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 1 tsp sweet paprika
- 1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tail on
- 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- 3-4 Tbsp. dry white wine
- 1 cup green peas
- salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 cup, freshly shredded Pecorino Romano cheese to serve
- Pappardelle pasta with wheat germ (about 1/2 lb.) or use other pasta of your choice linguine or fettuccine
- 2-3 Tbsp. unsalted buter, melted
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add two teaspoons salt and the pasta to the boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until al dente, according to the package instructions. After pasta is cooked drain well and dress it with a melted butter.
In a sauté pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the garlic, paprika and sauté for 1 minute until fragrant. Increase the heat to high, add the shrimp, lemon juice, lemon zest and dry white wine, stir well, and sauté until the shrimp turn pink and are opaque throughout, about 3-5 minutes. Add green peas and cook one more minute. Season with salt and black pepper.
Serve shrimp and peas immediately over cooked pasta, sprinkle with the cilantro and freshly shredded cheese.

It is also absolutely fantastic in use. It grates quickly, with little effort, and it is easy to direct the cheese straight from the grater onto the dish you are making. It is sturdy and super easy to disassemble, clean and put back together.
