This recipe can be very hot, but you can add or take away the spice by adding more or less red pepper depending on your personal preference. Be sure to use inexpensive medium-size shrimp in this garlicky, spicy classic.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain; keep warm.

Step 2

While pasta cooks, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic and shrimp; sauté or 3 minutes or until shrimp are done. Remove from pan; keep warm.

Step 3

Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil and onion to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon garlic, pepper, basil, and oregano; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in tomato paste and lemon juice; cook 1 minute or until slightly darkened. Stir in crushed tomatoes, salt, and diced tomatoes; cook 5 minutes or until thickened. Return shrimp to pan; cook for 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve over pasta.
