Lemon Pepper Shrimp Scampi

Another delicious recipe from one of my favorite magazines!

Cook 2 servings of angel hair pasta, once cooked mix in a handful (1/8 c?) chopped fresh cilantro.  Melt 1TB margarine or butter and saute shrimp (I used about 1.5 c of pre-cooked shrimp that were about 1.5 inches long).  Once shrimp are cooked through, put them in a separate bowl and add 2 (heaping) teaspoons to the butter.  Cook for about 1 minute and add 2.5 TB lemon juice and about 1/4 c ground pepper.  Add back shrimp and saute together for another minute or so.  Once combined, pour over pasta and mix together.
