Shrimp is one of my favourite foods and this garlic spicy shrimp pasta is one of my “goto” meals that I enjoy it in! This pasta dish is so quick and easy to make, in fact it takes less time to make the sauce than it takes to cook the pasta! This recipe starts out with the star of the show, the shrimp, which is cooked in oil before it is set aside.
The sauce is then built up in the shrimp flavour infused oil with onions followed by plenty of garlic and red pepper flakes for spicy heat. The heart of the sauce is a container of Pomì organic chopped tomatoes that is seasoned with oregano and a hit of clam juice to enhance the shell fish flavours. Salt, pepper and fresh chopped parsley bring the dish home along with the shrimp and pasta. (I like linguine with this dish!) This recipe is perfect for busy weeknight family meals and it’s also perfect to impress guests!
