Seriously. I love it. I'm drooling a bit over my keyboard just thinking about it. Below is an incredibly easy recipe that takes zero time - perfect for a weeknight after a long day of working.
Shrimp fra Diavolo
Pasta (of your choosing)
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic - minced
16 oz can of crushed tomatoes
2 to 3 teaspoons red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 to 1 pound of shrimp
1/8 cup parsley, chopped
Step 1: Heat Olive Oil and sauté onions until translucent and soft. Add garlic and sauté for a two more minutes.
Step 2: Add in herbs and red pepper flakes. I used about 2.5 teaspoons of red pepper flakes and my sauce was pretty fiery. Had some kick. Made ya sweat. So if that's not your thing, I would suggest using less. I will probably do just over 1.5 tsps next time. Allow the herbs and peppers to sauté into the onions - about a minute.
Step 3: Add canned tomatoes and parsley to the sauce pan and reduce heat. Simmer for about 20 minutes. Stirring frequently.
Step 4: Add a little evoo to a pan and lightly sear your shrimp, heating until pink, but not overcooking.
Step 5: Chef pasta according to package instructions. I choose a wheat angel hair. Strain, set aside.
Step 6: Add shrimp to the sauce and allow to heat together for a minute or two.
Step 7: Serve over pasta and top with shaved Parmesan and chopped parsley.
Step 8: Pour yourself a glass of red wine and enjoy!
Calories: This is a low cal dish. Keep it light by not over using the EVOO and not overdoing it on the pasta. I like to eat pasta out of a bowl instead of a plate - it keeps your portions down. One pasta serving size is 220 calories - which is about the size of one hand cupped.
