Spicy Shrimp and Penne with Puttanesca Sauce
Matt rating **** (I would rate this 5 stars!)
Red pepper flakes
Canned crushed tomatoes
Canned diced tomatoes
(I also added freshly grated parmesan cheese)
I absolutely love puttanesca sauce, so any dish with it will be a winner to me! Puttanesca is named after "ladies of the night" because it's spicy, fast, and easy!!! This dish took me less than 30 minutes to make, and would have been even less time if I would have purchased pre-peeled shrimp, but I got the shrimp that was on sale that just needed a quick peel since it was already de-veined.
I inhaled this dish before Matt had even eaten three bites of his. I am very proud of him considering this had tomatoes, anchovies, and shrimp, all things he is not fond of. He finished every shrimp on his plate and actually gave the dish a better rating than I was expecting. This is a keeper for me, but maybe on a night when I am having girlfriends over.
Well the baby is crying so back to mommy-duty I go!
