A classic spicy Italian dish with a wonderful addition of shrimp, to create a nice contrast between the sweetness of the shellfish and the savoury spicy taste of the sauce.
Ingredients 8 Number of Servings
1 box Barilla Spaghettini
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic, sliced
2 tsp red pepper flakes [or to taste]
3 cups canned peeled tomatoes
1 lb medium size shrimp, cleaned and cut lengthwise
1 tbsp chopped parsley
Place a pot of water to boil. Meanwhile, in a skillet, sauté shrimp with 2 tbsp olive oil for two minutes, set aside on a plate.
In the same skillet, add remaining olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes. Infuse over medium heat and when it starts frying, add peeled tomatoes, season with salt and bring to simmer.
Start cooking pasta, and halfway through add 1 cup of cooking water to the sauce, keep simmering.
- Drain pasta one minute short of the recommended cook time and toss in the skillet with sauce and shrimp over high heat.
Stir in parsley before serving.
