Lemon Vodka Shrimp Fettucine

I threw this together on Sunday night since I was torn between making a really quick and simple dinner and wanting to start using the shrimp I bought recently. This turned out much better than I expected and will definitely be going into the regular rotation.

Lemon Vodka Shrimp Fettucine

1 lb. fettucine or other long pasta
1 lb. shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup parmesan
1/4 cup oil
1 jar Vodka tomato-cream sauce

1. Bring water to boil. Add fettucine and cook for 11-12 minutes or until al dente. Drain and set aside.

2. While pasta is cooking, prepare shrimp. Soak in lemon juice for a few minutes and then toss with parmesan.

3. Heat oil in medium sauce-pan over medium heat. Add shrimp to oil and cook through, about 2 minutes on each side. Shrimp are ready when bright pink all over.

4. Drain shrimp from oil and toss with fettucine.

5. Warm sauce over medium-heat (or in microwave) and toss with pasta.
