Shrimp and Garlic Scape Scampi Recipe

A twist on the classic pasta and seafood dish using delicious garlic scapes.


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in garlic scape pesto, wine, lemon zest and juice until mixed. Bring to a simmer.
  2. Add shrimp and stir to coat with sauce. Cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring once or twice, until shrimp is opaque and cooked through.
  3. Add parsley and hot cooked noodles. Toss everything together to coat the noodles. Taste--to see if you want salt and pepper.

1 lemon, zested and juiced (about 1/4 cup or 2 ounces of juice and 1 Tablespoon of fresh zest)
