Spicy Shrimp Pasta Diavolo

What better way to start a new year than with some protein-packed pasta.Β  Juicy jumbo shrimp sitting on a bed of your favorite pasta, simmering in a slightly spicy, slight sweetened marinara sauce dotted with chunks of fire-roasted diced tomatoes. Top this 30-minute meal with some fresh basil and a hearty serving of Parmesan cheese and you’re all set.

Better Homes & Gardens recently invited me to guest post on their Delish Dish. What this typically means is I pick a recipe of theirs and adapt it to how I would cook it. So I went ahead and chose shrimp pasta diavolo, which is basically shrimp pasta in a spicy marinara sauce. It’s pretty wonderful if you like your pasta spicy and happen to be a fan of shrimp.

Some of the changes I made were to up the amount of pasta and shrimp used for a more hearty meal for 4 people. The biggest changes I made were to the sauce itself. I wanted the acidity of the pasta sauce to be balanced out with some sweetness to add another layer of flavor there. And I tossed in some Italian seasoning as well.

Head on over to read a more detailed account on the changes I made. It’s not much since I tried to keep it super simple, but it’s enough to make the pasta my own! You’ll find the original recipe I adapted from there as well.

PS: Sorry for the confusion guys! It’s not a traditional post with a recipe section. Part ofΒ Delish Dish’s shtick is to have a food blogger adapt a recipe, reference the original BH&G recipe they adapted from and mention the changes they made in prose. I didn’t make that many but the changes I did make are pretty clear, so read on πŸ™‚

Enjoy.

    I could not find the recipe either. It eventually brought me to the original BHG’s shrimp diavolo as well as a huge BHG advertisement. Your photos of the dish look good!

      Heya, Julia! I wish I could do it the traditional way but since I was invited by BH&G, I need to follow their Delish Dish rules! The changes I made were very little to the original recipe (links updated clearly in PS section of my post), but I tried being as clear as possible!

      There should be an ‘X’ button at the top right to get out of the ad. Unfortunately, I don’t have any control on the ad situation on Better Homes and Gardens…you’ll just have to ‘X’ out of it.
