Garlic Shrimp Toss

1 cup uncooked pasta of your choice
3 Tbl. olive oil
3 Tbl. butter
1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1 lb. uncooked shrimp, shelled
salt & pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to package directions. On medium high melt butter and olive oil. Add garlic and shrimp. cook 3-5 minutes or until shrimp is pink. Pour over pasta and toss.

Changes - This is good with any style of pasta but my favorite is the wagon wheel style. The butter/oil and garlic gets trapped inside the cutouts and it's so good. You can also make this dish using imitation crab, flaked salmon or tuna (drained of liquids). And to really make the dish appealing, sprinkle the top with chives before serving.
