I have made this for my sister-in-law Kerri (Mr. Man’s sister) pretty much every time she comes to visit us. I must have struck a nerve when she first asked me to come up with this recipe. She loves extremely spicy food and I wanted to make sure it hit the spot. Mind you not everyone needs to have it so spicy. You know your crew, see what works best at your house.
1 lb raw shrimp, cleaned, deveined and no shell
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 medium onion diced
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon crushed red pepper (or to your liking)
2 garlic cloves crushed and finely chopped
1 jar marinara sauce 28oz (even Giada sometimes uses the jar stuff!)
1/2 cup red wine (optional)
1 lb linguine or any pasta you like (I used whole-wheat this time…I like variety…in my pasta that is!)
In a large saucepan, heat your butter and olive oil. Reduce heat to medium and add your onion. Cook for 3-5 minutes until soft and translucent. Add your mushroom and garlic. Cook for 3-5 minutes more. Add your wine and reduce for 2-3 minutes, pour your sauce in your pan and cook for 10-15 minutes. When almost ready to eat add your shrimp and cook for 4-5 minutes. Do not over cook your shrimp or they will get rubbery and tasteless.
Add a couple spoonfuls of your red sauce to your pasta, mix well. Plate your pasta and top with LOTS more red sauce and shrimp. Top with grated Parmesan cheese.
I served this with a great bread called: Parmesan Pull-Aparts! Delicious!
