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.

  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!
