Salt and pepper
12 ounces angel hair pasta
1 cup frozen peas
2 tablespoons olive oil

3. Pour cream into skillet and increase heat to high. Boil, stirring to pick up any bits on bottom of skillet, until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Transfer to pot with pasta, shrimp and peas. Stir well, season with salt and pepper and serve warm.
