For those who love a touch of spice and seafood this is one delicious dish. I only used shrimp because it's our favorite shellfish. Feel free to add seafood of your choice. Enjoy!
Fra Diavolo Sauce with penne
- 4 to 6 cloves garlic, crushed
3 cups crushed tomatoes
- ½ cup heavy cream (I use half cream and half milk)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- ½ to 1 cup fresh spinach
(16 ounce) package penne or linguine cooked according to directions
8 ounces medium shrimp, peeled and deveined(I used already cooked and store bought)
- shaved Pecorino Romano Cheese
In a large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil with the garlic over medium heat. When the garlic starts to sizzle, pour in the tomatoes. Season with salt and red pepper. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat, and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. After sauce has cooked thirty minutes or slightly more remove from stove and add cream slowly stirring constantly.
- Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.
In a large skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over high heat. Add the shrimp. Cook for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently, or until the shrimp turn pink.( I use cooked shrimp) and fresh spinach. Add shrimp to the tomato mixture, and stir in the parsley. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the sauce just begins to bubble slightly. Serve sauce over pasta. Sprinkle with cheese
