Shrimp Fra Diavolo

I’ve never been a marinara girl.

When I was younger and it was pizza night, I would remove the cheese and wipe the sauce off with napkins. Then I would eat the cheese and the dough separately while throwing my sauce blotted napkins in the trash.

I never said I was normal…

Cheese has always been my go to but now that I’m more mature (haha) I eat my veggies(fruit) too.

Saturday night Adam and I joined forces in the kitchen to make a spicy dish, Shrimp Fra Diavolo. We both love anything spicy and this didn’t disappoint. Like chug two bottles of water at dinner while you sweat spicy.


Shrimp Fra Diavolo


  • 8 oz Linguine (We used Trader Joe’s Spinach & Chive)
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 2 tablespoons EVOO
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, slivered
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can fire roasted diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Parmesan Cheese (optional)


  • Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain.
  • While pasta cooks, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add 1 tablespoon garlic and shrimp. Sauté for 3 minutes or until shrimp are done. Remove from pan; keep warm.
  • Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil and onion to pan – sauté 5 minutes or until softened.
  • Stir in remaining rosemary, red pepper, basil, fennel seeds and oregano. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in lemon juice, crushed tomatoes, salt, and diced tomatoes – cook 5 minutes or until thickened.
  • Return shrimp to pan – cook for 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve over pasta.
  • Sprinkle Parmesan on top if desired.




  1. I may be just the opposite. I looove marinara. We made homemade pizzas on Sat night and coated those babies up. If only I had more for dipping.

  2. Yum! This looks awesome. My husband and I love anything with a little kick to it too, and I am sooo going to use that Trader Joe’s spinach & chive linguine that you used. Glad I found your blog!
