Boil pasta according to directions on package. Be sure to salt the water well.

Season shrimp well with salt, pepper and 1 tsp garlic powder. Sautee the shrimp in 3 TBS melted butter for just a few mins, til pink. Remove shrimp from pan. Add each of these to same pan: 1 stick butter, 1 tsp dried oregano, 1 TBS parsley, 2 tsp minced garlic and a dash of salt and pepper (to taste).
