  1. Cook pasta according to package directions only until just al dente; drain; set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large, heavy skillet (I love making this in my wok!). Add lemon zest, garlic, red pepper flakes, basil and oregano; saute over medium heat 2 minutes.
  3. Add shrimp and saute until opaque, about 4 minutes. Note that shrimp should almost be fully cooked at this stage, but not completely, so don't overcook this step or shrimp will be tough.
  4. Add parsley, green onions, salt and pepper, and cook 1 minute longer.
  5. Stir in lemon juice and cook another minute, then add the cooked pasta and parmesan cheese; toss well and serve immediately.
  6. Serve with additional parmesan cheese, if desired.
