Citrus Garlic Shrimp Pasta

This is my favorite pasta recipe. Its a great meal when you are looking for a pasta dish that doesn't feel to "heavy."

Citrus Garlic Shrimp Pasta

1 pound linguine
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup orange juice*
1/3 cup lemon juice*
3-4 garlic cloves, peeled
5 teaspoons grated lemon peel*
4 teaspoons grated orange peel*
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
Shredded Parmesan cheese
Fresh parsley, scallions, or chives to garnish
*I use 2 lemons and 2 oranges which is about the right amount for the zest and juice needed

Cook linguine according to package directions. Meanwhile in a food processor combine the next 8 ingredients; cover and process until well blended.

Pour this mixture into a large skillet; heat through. Add shrimp. Cook or 5 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Drain linguine; toss with shrimp mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and garnish if desired.
