Marinara pasta topped with a spicy shrimp sauté
Doesn't the plain, old marinara pasta ever get boring to eat? Well, I guess there's a solution to that. Why not add more flavor, protein, and spice?
The solution is a shrimp sauté, bringing out loads of flavor and added crispy textures from the shrimp. And for an added bonus, you can always add a bit of spice. So without further ado, let's get to the recipe!
desired amount of shrimp with the shells peeled off
box of spaghetti
1 liter of water
salt, pepper, and garlic seasoning
4 tablespoons butter
desired amount of marinara sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
olive oil(or any other oil)
Bring the liter of water to a boil in a large pot. Then add in the spaghetti and let it cook until it reaches the desired texture.
In another pan, wait for it to heat up and then drizzle a little bit of olive oil, coating the pan.
Lay all the shrimp in the pan, keeping little space between each one. Wait until the bubbling below the shrimp lessens until you flip, or flip when the side of the shrimp slightly browned.
After all sides of the shrimp are cooked, lower the heat and stir occasionally, adding in the salt, pepper, and garlic seasoning and the chili powder.
Strain the pasta, and in a pot, add in some butter and place it on low heat.
Place the strained pasta into the pot with butter and stir until evenly distributed. Then, stir in the marinara equally.
Distribute the marinara pasta into bowls. Then disperse the shrimp into the bowls on top of the pasta. Optionally, you may sprinkle some parmesan cheese over the bowls for taste. Enjoy!
Keep in mind
To make something taste good, it does not always need to come out of a book. But to make it taste the best, it is always nice to add your own flavors or elements to better show your interest and personality on a plate.
