This recipe can be easily be multiplied but does not make very good leftovers.
Place the garlic, butter, and minced parsley in a small bowl and blend together well. This is best done at least 2 hours before serving, but overnight is fine (and might be even better).
Place the water in a large stockpot over high heat.
When the water begins boiling, add the pasta and cook for about 8 - 12 minutes (or according to package directions) until just done.
After the pasta has been cooking for about 3 - 4 minutes, place a large skillet over medium high heat.
Add the scampi butter, and when it melts, add the shrimp.
Cook for about 4 minutes, tossing occasionally.
Add the white wine and continue to cook the shrimp, tossing occasionally.
Cook for another 4 minutes. If the sauce reduces too much and is too thick, add some of the pasta water one tablespoon at a time.
Drain the pasta and add it to the pan with the shrimp. Toss to coat, cooking for about one minute.
