The sauce was tangy and sharp, mellow by my standards for spice, but just right for Nancy and Quinn. Topped with the shrimp, Pecorino cheese and some parsley, it was very satisfying.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook and stir green bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, onion, and garlic in hot oil until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Season the mixture with salt and pepper.

  • Stir tomatoes, wine, 1/4 cup parsley, basil, oregano, and red pepper flakes into the bell pepper mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and put a cover on the Dutch oven. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes break down, about 2 hours.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water until nearly cooked through, about 10 minutes; drain.

  • Stir drained pasta and cooked shrimp into the tomato sauce; cook until the pasta is cooked completely through yet firm to the bite, 2 to 3 minutes more. Serve with remaining parsley and Pecorino-Romano cheese.

This was a fantastic dinner and we all loved it. I followed everything, including a two hour simmering with the sauce, but did throw in some slice mushrooms that had to be used or they were heading to the compost. They were a very nice addition. My shrimp was fresh so I just tossed it in the sauce the last few minutes until it pinked up. I'm keeping this one on a rotation for our household. Thanks Foodie. Read More

Not much flavor for such a long cooking time and I even doubled the basil and oregano. I probably won't make this one again. Read More

I was short on time so I wasn't able to simmer for 2 hours but it was fantastic. It had some kick probably just enough. This recipe could be easily adapted for many tastes. You could add in bacon or broccoli or mushrooms as some have suggested and this would be just elevated to a new level. Topping with cheese is essential. Read More

I really liked this but my husband found it too spicy for his taste. Next time I make this I will cut back on the crushed red pepper. Read More

My husband & I loved this! Only changes were simmered for 30 minutes only had one can chopped tomatoes so added one ripe tomato plus one can tomato sauce. Used whole wheat pasta. Pretty spicy like we like. If you have concerns cut back half on the red pepper flakes. Read More

I loved this even more than I expected so I had to write a review. I didn't have any wine on hand so I used 1 cup of Ginger Ale instead (since I was adding Broccoli, I thought a little extra liquid would be good ). Worked great ! Also steamed some fresh broccoli and put that in the pot the last 10 minutes along with the "uncooked" shrimp. After shrimp cooked through , I threw in the pasta. Was delish ! Restaurant quality. Followed everything else . Already called my sister and told her about it! Thanks! Read More

Yum. Just enough heat plenty of flavor. Used several veggies and herbs from the garden so it was extra special. Next time I plan to spiralize zucchini rather than using pasta. Read More
