Shrimp Fra Diavolo

Shrimp Fra Diavolo

Prep: 27 minutes; Cook: 23 minutes

Reduce the crushed red pepper in this recipe if you prefer a less spicy entrée. Spicy or not, the fragrance of fire-roasted tomatoes, rosemary, and garlic fills the kitchen with a mouthwatering aroma. You can substitute fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth for the wine, but our tasting panel preferred the wine-flavored version. Serve this dish with a fresh garden salad and a glass of your favorite wine.
