Cook shrimp until almost pink on 1 side and turn about 2-3 minutes. When shrimp are almost cooked ( still a bit translucent) remove to a bowl and set a side.

Cook for about 1-2 minutes over medium low heat with a lid until most liquid has been absorbed and a sauce has formed. Add parsley and shrimp. Finish cooking shrimp and squeeze fresh lemon juice over the top and top with parmesan.
Hint if pasta is too dry from over cooking add 1/4 cup additional pasta water.
