Spicy Shrimp Pomodoro Sauce
This tangy Spicy Shrimp Pomodoro Sauce recipe has always been a family favorite. Tender shrimp covered with a spicy sauce and served over your favorite pasta makes an excellent family meal.
This recipe is a little different than your traditional arrabiata sauce. I like to use fresh diced Roma tomatoes so the sauce remains a little thick and chunky,
The amount of spice that you use while preparing this Spicy Shrimp Pomodoro Sauce is entirely up to you. I personally like a lot of spice in this dish. It blends well with the shrimp.
