Shrimp (Prawns) in Garlic Butter over Pasta

Total time: 25 minutes
     This is a variation on Scampi, Shrimp in Garlic Butter. The lemon juice and white wine extend the sauce without using quite so much butter and the Prosciutto is a sweet/salty counterpoint to the shrimp, balancing the flavors nicely. Sprinkle with fresh Parmesan or not...  You can use frozen, raw shrimp or pre-cooked for this.
