Shrimp Arrabbiata

Shrimp Arrabbiata created by JoyfulCook

An Italian recipe from CookingLight. This dish's name--arrabbiata--comes from the Italian word for "angry" because of the spicy tomato and red pepper sauce. If you want, double the tomato sauce and freeze half for a jump start on a future meal. Taste test and if you like your sauce spicier, increase the red pepper. Spinach pasta would be great with this! If your family likes mushrooms add them in, too. Add french bread and a salad, and mangiare-eat!

    With the exception of not using the tomato paste (I got tired of using 1-2 tbsps and throwing out the rest of the can so I stopped buying it) I made this by the recipe for a great tasting dinner. Oh yeah, I used whole wheat pasta and medium shrimp. It had some bite but wasn't too angry. I made one serving and it made a lot but I ate it all, I'm so bad! :D

    DELICIOUS! I made mine nice and angry with a generous amount of red pepper flakes ~ Made with fresh basil, and added more olives than called for because I really like them! Made for Fall PAC 2011.
