A note about serious food allergies

“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 its 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.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Medium Pot
  • 1 Colander
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Large Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • 1

    Cook Pasta and Prepare Ingredients

    Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 10-12 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander. Set aside. While pasta cooks, halve French roll, if necessary. Mince garlic. Halve tomatoes. Stem and coarsely chop parsley. Pat shrimp dry, and season all over with a pinch of pepper.

  • 2

    Bake the Cheesy Bread

    Place roll halves, cut-side up, on prepared baking sheet. Top evenly with 2 tsp. olive oil, 1 tsp. Parmesan, half the mozzarella (reserve remaining of each for sauce), and a pinch of pepper. Bake in hot oven until bread is lightly toasted and cheese is melted, 5-7 minutes. While bread bakes, start shrimp.

    Start the Shrimp

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add shrimp to hot pan and cook undisturbed until seared on one side, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Shrimp will finish cooking in a later step. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • 4

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook shrimp to medium heat. Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil and garlic to hot pan and stir until fragrant, 30-60 seconds. Add tomatoes and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally, mashing tomatoes, until softened, 5-7 minutes. Add ½ tsp. red wine vinegar (remaining is yours to do with as you wish!), remaining Parmesan, shrimp, pasta, and reserved pasta cooking water. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees and sauce thickens to coat pasta, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner.
