I have made a couple of different shrimp and pasta dishes, but this one was exceptionally delicious. I think the marjoram really brought it to a new level. I seasoned my shrimp with paprika, cayenne, garlic, black pepper and salt. Simply just salt and pepper will do the trick though if you prefer to keep it a little on the milder side.

Cook pasta according to package directions until desired tenderness. Meanwhile in skillet heat oil over medium high heat. Season shrimp as desired with salt and pepper; add paprika, garlic and cayenne if desired. Saute about 5 minutes or until finished.
