Spicy Shrimp Pasta


So I bought some shrimp last week and needed to use it up. When we have good shrimp, we don’t like to use a heavy sauce or anything so that the shrimp really shines through. I found this recipe with just a few flavors to it, so it would let the shrimp shine. I did make this into a one-pot meal and it turned out awesome! The shrimp didn’t really turn out crispy at all like in the original, but since the shrimp were coated in flour, it did help thicken up the sauce.
