I sauteed until the shrimp was mostly pink (meanwhile stirring the pasta), then I added some wine. I have read that shrimp scampi has white wine, but I had an open rose, so I used that instead. I decided I needed a vegetable, so I cut some brocolli florets and steamed them in the microwave. Next went in a bit of fresh basil and parsley.
As I continued to cook, I realized there wasn't enough liquid so I added some more wine. One can never have too much wine. When the pasta was done, I added it to the shrimp, then I added the brocolli.
From start to finish in just under 30 minutes, this was a great, complete dinner. Next time I will add a little more garlic and, for a touch of heat, a smidgen of crushed red pepper. Despite the hectic schedule, I am still dining well, even if alone. I may preffer cooking for a group, but I sometimes enjoy just cooking for myself as I can try new things or dishes others wouldn't fancy. Well I fancied this quite a bit. Perhaps I will have a table for 1 more often.
