Shrimp Fra Diavolo

I’m not Italian, but it’s no secret that Italian families love their food and are very family oriented. In my home area, the Italian restaurants in were all known to be closed on Monday. It was their family day. I think we could all benefit from having one family day a week. Which is why I love Sunday Supper so much! To me, Sunday Supper is all family!

Your spicy tomato sauce is made in the same pan the shrimp is made in. When the sauce is ready, you put the shrimp back into the saucepan and toss to coat. Serve over some cooked pasta along with a nice slice of garlic bread if you wish!
