Shrimp Spaghetti

1/2 lb. spaghetti
1 lb. shrimp, shelled and cleaned
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp. crushed chili peppers, (more or less to taste)
1/2 tsp. Zatarain's Jazz It Up Seafood Zesty Seasoning
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Cook spagetti according to package.  While spaghetti is cooking - in a frying pan heat oil on medium high.  Add shrimp, garlic, chili peppers and seasoning.  Cook stirring often until shrimp is pink and done.  Drain spaghetti and put into serving bowl.  Pour shrimp mixture over spaghetti.  Add cheese and toss.  Serve immediately.  Serves 4. 

Comments - This is a simple make after a long day dish.  It may sound like a scampi but the seasoning and the cheese gives it a totally different taste.  It's delicious!  If you don't have Zatarain's Jazz It Up you can use Old Bay or any other seafood seasoning you might have.  Also, if you use large shrimp you might want to cut them into pieces.  I use the around 30 count size but a smaller size would have been perfect.
