- 1-2 pinches salt (additional salt if desired)

*1 cup cooked pasta equals approximately 2 ounces dry.
In a large pot, boil the water, add the salt and the pasta, continue on a hard boil stirring often. Cook the pasta until al dente.
While the pasta is cooking, in a large frying pan add the olive oil, garlic, chopped parsley, shrimp, salt and hot pepper flakes. Cook on medium heat until shrimps are cooked and no longer pink approximately 5-6 minutes, but watch them and stir occasionally, because you don't want them to burn or stick to the pan.
When shrimps are cooked, add the cooked al dente pasta and half a ladle of pasta water, cook on high heat tossing together until the water has evaporated almost becoming a creamy mixture, serve immediately topped with fresh chopped parsley. Enjoy!
