Is there anything better than a 15 minute dinner recipe? Pasta recipes are IDEAL for a quick and easy dinner because it's ready in just minutes, it's versatile, and it's always a crowd pleaser.
Speaking of fast cooking, I love using shrimp in pasta because I always have a bag hidden in my freezer. Of course, fresh shrimp works very well, too. Either way, you'll want to start with raw, peeled, and duped shrimp for this Spicy Shrimp Fra Diavolo recipe.
To pair with the tender shrimp, sauté the garlic and chili flakes in a little olive oil between the white wine and the whole peeled tomatoes.
This entire dish comes together in just 15 minutes, and if you keep a pantry and freezer well stocked, you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen as I write.
Pro tip: When you cook shrimp at home, the secret is not overcooking them. Thawed shrimp take just 2-3 minutes per side. You will know that shrimp cook when it turns light pink.
For pasta, I decided to use whole wheat linguine that adds protein and fiber to the plate, along with a rich texture. That said, use whatever pasta you have on hand.

Before serving, garnish with any fresh herbs you have, such as basil or parsley. And of course, don't forget the Parmesan cheese.
Your fork is waiting.
