Combine the two recipes together and you get this spicy shrimp pasta that is amazing and absolutely delicious!
This shrimp pasta is speckled with generous chili flakes so it’s spicy. The sauce is a simple garlic herb buttery and lemony sauce made with white wine.
All these ingredients are so happy together in the skillet.
For the pasta, I used spaghetti rigati, which is practically ridged spaghetti. This shrimp pasta tastes so much better because of it.
Those tiny bits of garlic and parsley leaves cling onto the pasta makes it extra flavorsome.
This shrimp pasta recipe makes a perfect dish for dinner tonight. The recipe is as good as the best Italian restaurant, at a fraction of the cost. Enjoy!
