If you like things with a bit of spice to them, you need to give this a try. It is DELICIOUS. My husband ordered a dish called “Shrimp Diavolo” at Bonefish Grill one time and I have been wanting to recreate it ever since. I think I have done it.
The biggest plus to this for me, besides it being yummy, is that it took less than 30 minutes to make. That is good news to busy moms needing something tasty to fix for dinner. If you don’t like spicy stuff, you should still make this. Just leave out the crushed red pepper flakes or decrease the amount to your liking. The flavor is great either way.
1 lb linguine noodles (you can certainly use fettucini or spaghetti pasta too) (I use Tinkyada GF brown rice pasta)
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 medium onion, diced
3 cloves or garlic, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (use less if you don’t like spicy)
1 1/2 cups tomato sauce
2 TBSP tomato paste
1 1/2 lbs shrimp, peeled and deveined with tails removed
2 TBSP heavy cream
1/2 cup grated parmesan (optional. but oh so delicious!)
2 TBSP chopped parsley to garnish
Cook the pasta according to pkg directions. Drain.
While pasta is cooking, saute chopped onion, green and red peppers, and garlic in olive oil for about 6-8 minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce and tomato paste. Add the red pepper flakes and simmer on low for about 5 minutes. Add in the shrimp and cook for another 5-6 min or until the shrimp are pink. Stir in the heavy cream at the end.
Toss the cooked linguine in the sauce. Sprinkle with parmesan and chopped parsley and serve.
