Shrimp Fra Diavolo Over Angel Hair

The Mister has been asking for shrimp fra diavolo so I thought I’d make that tonight. I prepared it a little differently than I did last time.

What I used:

12 oz raw medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and tail removed
12 oz  angel hair pasta
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon dried crushed red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
Olive oil
1 medium onion, sliced
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 cup dry white wine
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley  — Italian (flat-leaf) is preferred by the store didn’t have any so I used curly
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

Toss the shrimp in a bowl with 1 teaspoon of salt and red pepper flakes.

Turn the Ninja 3-in-1 on to STOVETOP HIGH and heat approximately 3 tablespoons olive oil. Add the shrimp and sauté for about a minute, toss, and continue cooking until just cooked through, about 1 to 2 minutes.

Transfer the shrimp to a bowl and set aside.

Add the onion to the Ninja pot, adding a 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper (to taste) and a big pinch of sugar.

Stirring frequently sauté for 10 minutes or so until nicely caramelized. Once the onions are almost done, add the garlic.

When the onions are golden, add the tomatoes with their juices, wine, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and oregano. Set the Ninja to STOVETOP LOW, cover and simmer until the sauce thickens slightly, about 20-30 minutes.

When the pasta water is boiling and you’ve added your pasta and that’s cooking away merrily. Now would be a good time to return the shrimp, basil and parsley to the sauce and stir well.

When the angel hair was done cooking (al dente!) I added it to the sauce and mixed well.
