Gia Shrimp Fra Diavolo

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Southern Lady

Recipe courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis of Food Network. There's another recipe similar yet different from a cookbook. This was from a recent showing of "Everyday Italian". We all thoroughly enjoyed the dish and served a side of spaghetti with olive oil, parmesan cheese and seasonings and a green salad.

This was excellent! I reversed the order, adding the shrimp (good large Gulf shrimp) last after the mixture reduced, so that I didn't I couldn't over cook the shrimp. Served it with French bread (the New Orleans kind, crispy on the outside and light on the inside) to sop up all the sauce and champagne. A huge hit! Can't wait to make it again.
