Angel hair pasta with shrimp, garlic and mushrooms

Yum, yum... Mike threw this together tonight, and it was so wonderful....i knew I'd forget what he added if I didn't write it down. We had the pasta with a caesar salad with homemade croutons and the 3 children who don't like shrimp, had tasty cornmeal coated and pan fried dear husband was quite busy tonight!`

1 box angel hair pasta, cooked according to directions-return to big spaghetti pot after draining.
*note, one box was really not enough for our family of 6!

1 1/2 lbs peeled, deveined and steamed shrimp

1 cup fresh mushrooms, diced

1/2 yellow onion. chopped

4-6 cloves garlic, chopped

4 Tbsp olive oil

1/2 cup white wine

salt and pepper to taste

saute the onion, 1/2 the garlic and the mushrooms till tender in 2 Tbsp olive oilover medium high heat-transfer this mixture (including the oil) to the pot with the angel hair-toss to mix.

Saute remaining garlic and shrimp in 2 Tbsp olive oil over med high heat till shrimp is warmed through-add white wine, reduce heat and simmer another 5 minutes.

add shrimp, garlic and wine mixture to angel hair and toss again-serve immediately.

My non-shrimp eating kiddos loved the mushroom-garlic pasta as well, minus the shrimp....more for the grown ups!!!
