Chop up 6-8 cloves of garlic. Put a pan with 4 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil and a tbsp. of butter on the stove at medium low. Let the oil and the butter heat up for a minute or so and add the garlic stirring it up to distribute it out in the pan. Add a pinch each of salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes. Spread the shrimp out in the pan laying on their sides. As soon as they turn pink on the down or pan side turn them over. When they are pink on both sides take the pasta out of the pot with a pair of grabbers or 2 large forks, whatever works for you, and put the pasta in the pan with the shrimp and garlic. Add a couple of tbsp. of the pasta water and a about 2 tbsp. of chopped fresh parsley, (or 1tbsp. of dried) and 3-4 tbsp. of grated parmesan cheese to the pan. Mix it all together and toss a couple of times.
