Ingredients

12 oz. penne
3 tbsp. butter, divided
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. raw medium or large shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley, plus more for garnish
Kosher salt
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. milk (preferably whole or 2%)

Freshly ground black pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook penne according to package directions until al dente. Drain.
