Follow the directions on the box of linguine. Heat the water while you prepare the shrimp scampi.
Melt the butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Saute the garlic for 1 minute, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
Add the shrimp to the pan and brown on 1 side (approximately 3 minutes) and turn.
Carefully add the white wine and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper
Cover the skillet until the shrimp are cooked/pink (about 3 minutes) Remove the shrimp to a bowl and turn the heat to medium high. Scrape the bottom of the skillet to get any brown bits up. Cook for an additional 7 minutes.
Drain the linguine and toss it with the shrimp and sauce. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
