We got a bit off schedule but finally did end up eating this very tasty dish last week. We left out the mushrooms because ours had started to grow again already and canned mushrooms just aren’t the same in things like this – but was very tasty regardless. I really like that it was so simple and quick to make and I’m fairly certain we will make this again. We usually have some frozen shrimp in the freezer anyway so this is a perfect last minute dish if we are between meal plans.

Shrimp Fra Diavolo
Italian for “brother devil,” fra diavolo sauce is usually tomato-based and always spicy. Although not traditionally included, mushrooms offer an earthiness that balances the sauce’s heat. For a truly fiery dish, increase the crushed red pepper to 3/4 teaspoon.
