BOIL pasta until just barely al dente (I used Spaghetti Rigati) and save 2 cups of pasta water on side…

DRAIN and run pasta under cold water to halt cooking…

PEEL shrimp and save shells on side…

CHOP garlic + parsley stems…

SAUTÉE garlic + parsley stems + red chili flake in olive oil…

ADD shrimp shells + some pasta water… and cook until shells turn orange…

ADD shrimp + 2 tbsp of butter and pasta water…

ADD pasta and toss…

TOP with shaved parmesan and chopped parsley…
