    • 1 pound linguini
    • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
    • 1 large shallot, chopped
    • 5 cloves garlic, sliced
    • Pinch of red pepper flakes
    • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled & deveined, tail on optional
    • Kosher salt and ground black pepper
