This is another super easy recipe! And it tastes like you spent a whole lot of time cooking! You friends and family will be plenty impressed, I promise. The level of spiciness is up to you, I prefer a little kick to this dish, but you can make it spicier by adding more pepper flakes. I make this dish on weekdays for my family, or even on date night. It is low effort, high rewards!
What you’ll need:
- 1 pound raw large shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 chopped onion
- 3 tbsp minced garlic
- 2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 (28 oz) can of crushed tomatoes
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
In a skillet over medium heat add the olive oil and sauté the onions for 4 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds.
Add the crushed tomatoes, salt, chopped parsley and red pepper flakes. Cook the sauce for 4 minutes.
Add the shrimp and cook for another 3 minutes. Serve with pasta of your choice (I used spinach spaghetti) and garnish with more chopped parsley.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that.
All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything.
Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
