  1. Add the pasta to a large pot of boiling salted water and stir. Cook until al dente, about 2 minutes less than the box instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, add the olive oil to a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the pepperoncini flakes along with the garlic and cook until just starting to turn very light golden brown, about 2 minutes, then turn up the heat slightly and add the shrimp. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and saute until the bottom turns pink or opaque, 2 to 3 minutes on one side. Turn the shrimp over to finish cooking, about 1 minute. Add about 1/3 cup of the pasta water. Drain the pasta and add it to the saute pan. Turn up the heat slightly and let cook to thicken the sauce, about 1 minute. Add the herbs, reserving about a teaspoon of each for garnish. Season with salt and pepper as needed. Transfer to a serving dish. Drizzle with a little olive oil and garnish with the reserved herbs.
