SPICY SHRIMP PASTA DIAVOLO RECIPE TIPS
While cooking your pasta until al dente, we’ll make the sauce. Saute your onions, garlic and red pepper flakes then add in the tomatoes and tomato sauce. Toss in the additional seasonings and wine (optional) and simmer gently until it’s nice and thick.
Add in the shrimp which you’ll only need to cook for a couple of minutes and since shrimp cooks really fast, you’ll want to babysit them. Cook them just enough that they stay plump and juicy. You’ll know you’ve overcooked it when they start shrinking in size. Then we toss the cooked pasta in with the sauce and mix it all up.
