spicy shrimp spaghetti recipe

This tangy Spicy Shrimp Spaghetti recipe has always been a family favorite.

This recipe is a little different than your traditional arrabbiata sauce.

I like to use fresh diced Roma tomatoes so the sauce remains a little thick and chunky,


The amount of spice that you use while preparing this Spicy Shrimp Pomodoro Sauce is entirely up to you. I personally like a lot of spice in this dish. It blends well with the shrimp.
