Normally, a scampi is served over angel hair or capellini pasta. But since that pasta cooks the fastest of them all, it’s a wee-bit delicate when cooked under pressure and so I chose a sturdier linguine. If you want to try the angel hair, just lower the pressure cook time to 3 minutes (it may break apart easily, though). Or if you want to use a thicker, hollowed-out spaghetti called bucatini (or perciatelli), up the pressure cook time to 12 minutes. Whatever you choose, just make sure you break the noodles in half and lay in a crisscross fashion like the linguine, so they fit and cook evenly in the pot.
To Serve 1–2:
Simply halve the recipe. Cook times remain the same.
