YUMMMMMMY!! This is so good and can be thrown together in a snap. It tastes like it comes from a restaurant and looks kinda like it, too.

Pat the shrimp dry after rinsing we..  Toss the shrimp with 1/2 lemon zest and 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.  In a large skittle, med-hi, melt butter until the bubbling subsides.  ADd shallot, garlic and red pepper flakes and cook, stir all the time, until garlic is JUST turning brown, about 1 minute.  Add shrimp and cook 1 min 30 sec and turn over, reduce to med heat and add wine and 1/2 lemon juice.  Bring this lovely mix to a boil and add the mascarpone cheese and reserved pasta water then add in the cooked linguini and toss to coat all the noodles.  Cook for 1-2 minutes until the sauce thickens.  Mix in the rest of the zest, juice and basil.  Season with salt and pepper and a little parmesan cheese.  DEVOUR!
