Penne with Spicy Garlic Shrimp, Vodka Sauce & Arugula


Penne with Spicy Garlic Shrimp, Vodka Sauce and Arugula


1/2 jar of Gia Russa Hot Sicilian Pasta Sauce

1/2 jar Bertolli Vodka Sauce

6 cloves garlic

12 shrimp

1/2 box penne pasta

1/2 bag fresh arugula

olive oil

crushed red pepper


Parmesan or fresh mozzarella - if putting cheese with fish doesn't make you go mental.


Heat the olive oil & saute the garlic cloves - whole - for about a minute.  Add the shrimp with a tablespoon of crushed red pepper and S&P to taste.  Saute until the shrimp are pink.  Set aside.

I heat put the two sauces in a pan & blended them.  I added crushed red pepper to this sauce.

Cook the pasta according to directions.  Drain.  Put pasta on two plates, top with fresh, raw arugula & then some sauce.  Arrange shrimp on top of this & serve.  It is considered a sin to put any cheese on fish - so this dish is best served without Parmesan - but my boyfriend likes cheese - so I added some sliced, fresh mozzarella to his.
