While the pasta is cooking, in a braising pan heat the olive oil on medium.
Add the minced garlic and sauté until it is just soft. Do not allow it to brown.
Stir in the tomato, wine and lemon juice. Reduce the liquid to half.
Add in the shrimp, salt, red pepper flakes, fennel seeds, and nutmeg. Flip over the shrimp once they turn color.
Once the shrimp are nicely colored and slightly firm add the orecchiette.
Toss on the arugula, lemon zest and chopped parsley.
