Ingredients

1 pound angel hair pasta

6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 cup chopped onion

3 tablespoons minced garlic (about 9 cloves)

2 to 3 teaspoons crushed red pepper, to taste

1 1/2 cups tomato sauce

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1 1/2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 teaspoon salt, plus more for the pasta water

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, optional

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until barely tender, about 4 minutes. Drain the pasta, reserving 1 cup of the cooking water, and set aside.
  2. Set a 14-inch saute pan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the onion and cook until lightly caramelized and wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the crushed red pepper and saute briefly; then add the tomato sauce and tomato paste. Cook until the sauce has reduced by about 1/2, about 3 minutes. Add the shrimp to the sauce and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the pasta and the reserved cooking water to the pan, and cook until the pasta is heated through and coated with the sauce, 3 minutes. Season the pasta with the salt, and garnish with the parsley. Toss to combine, and serve with the grated cheese, if using and desired.
