Spice Level: Mild

Contains: Shellfish (Shrimp), Milk, Wheat
“Fra Diavolo” is Italian for “devil monk,” and while we certainly want the rest of that story, or to stream the first season of the “devil monk” TV series, we assume it's because these flavors are supernaturally good. Succulent shrimp, with a dash of spice, mixed with delightful pasta and a garlicky tomato sauce that's perfection of Biblical proportions. Put down the Dan Brown and the Umberto Eco; we've got the best “devil monk” right here. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.
