Simple restaurant fare in the comfort of your home and budget.
What You Need
1 lb Jumbo Shrimp (21/25)
1-2 Red Chilis (chefs spice preference)1/2 cup Chopped Mushrooms
2 tbsp Chopped Black Olives
4 Cloves Garlic
6 oz. Tomato Sauce2 tbsp Pasta Water (save from water pasta cooks in)
1/4 cup Finely Chopped Red Bell Pepper1/2 lb Pasta (pictured w/ Spinach Spaghetti)
In a separate medium large skillet, saute the minced garlic cloves, red chili, and shallot in the olive oil for 3-5 minutes, or until the shallots begin to turn transluculent (wait until pasta is cooking to start sauce). Next, add the mushrooms, bell pepper and olives, and saute for 2-3 more minutes. Add the tomato sauce, salt, and parsley, and bring to simmer.
Wait until the pasta is ready to add the shrimp to the tomato sauce (but do not let the bell pepper cook more than 5-8 minutes in sauce). When the pasta is drained, add the shrimp to the sauce and cook 4-6 minutes, or until plump and pink. Quickly toss in the pasta and serve!
