Easy, easy, easy. And you won't believe the sauce. Careful! This is spicy-hot...if you can't take the heat, adjust the red pepper flakes accordingly.

I was in a hurry and craving shrimp with some extra flavor. This fit the bill perfectly! I marinated the shrimp for just an hour at room temperature and the flavor was still bold. And don't forget to serve the bread - the sauce is just too good to waste! My whole family loved it, though I did recuce the red pepper for their palates. Steamed rice and a green salad rounded out our meal - and ice cream cooled things down afterwards!

Now, I can't say what I would have thought of this if I had used a whole tablespoon of red pepper flakes. I used half a teaspoon and it was just perfect. Get the marinade going the night before and this is so simple to pop in the oven after work and serve with fresh bread and salad.

Was just wonderful!! Not too hot for the faint of heart. I subsituted basil for the oregano for a stronger flavor, and it was just perfect.
