Linguine with Shrimp Scampi

I made this the other day and it's one of my new favorites!! It's a Rachel Ray but I changed a few things. I bought a bag of frozen shrimp at Sam's Club about 2 months ago and made 4 meals from it which is how I could afford buying shrimp. Try it!!!!!!

Linguine With Shrimp Scampi
Veggie Oil
3/4 p. Linguine (I used half a box since it's just Mike and I)
3 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter
2 1/2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 1/2 Tbsp. Minced Garlic (4 cloves)
1 p. Shrimp, peeled and deveined, (about 16 shrimp)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/3 C. chopped fresh Parsley, (I used Fresh Basil cause lets be honest Fresh basil is AMAZING!!!)
1/2 Lemon Zest
1/4 C. Fresh Lemon Juice (2 Lemons), -1 Lemon if using just half a package
1/1 Lemon, thinly sliced into half rounds
1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes (I didn't have any so I substituted 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper)

Drizzle oil in Lrg. pot salted boiling water. Add 1 Tbsp. salt and Linguine. Cook till al dente.

meanwhile, in heavy bottomed pan, melt butter and olive oil over med-low heat. Add garlic, saute for 1 min till fragrant. Add shrimp, 1 1/2 tsp. salt and pepper. Saute till opaque, about 5 minutes, turning often. Remove from heat, add parsley (BASIL!!!) zest, lemon juice, lemon slices and pepper flakes. Toss with drained pasta in pot and serve.
