Looking for a quick, yet delicious recipe? Lately, I tried to find a spaghetti alternative to the all-time favorite spaghetti bolognese and I came across a recipe from Chefkoch. Spaghetti Ferrari are incredibly easy to make, not too heavy and very tasty. The name comes from the spicy taste, as the sauce is made with shrimps, chili gives it a nice kick. So tasty it was that I did not even get to take a picture. Isn’t that an argument? :)
1 pack spaghetti
700-800g shrimps (if you are cooking for several people, count 6-7 shrimps per person)
500g cherry tomatoes
3 cloves garlic
1 chili or 1 teaspoon sambal oelek
Olive oil (for the pan)
Salt, pepper, parsley, basil or marjoram
1) If you have bought your shrimps pre-cooked, peel them. If you are preparing raw shrimps, first boil them in hot water for 10 min, then peel them.
2) Peel the onions and the garlic, then cut in small dice.
3) Cut the tomatoes in half.
4) Sauté the shrimps from both sides, add your onions, garlic and chili and sauté until the onions are glassy.
5) Now take out the shrimps and put them aside.
6) Add the tomatoes to the pan and let cook for 5 min (the tomatoes should get soft but they should not fall apart).
7) Season with salt, pepper, parsley and basil or marjoram.
8) Boil the spaghetti as instructed.
9) Serve directly on a plate or mix the spaghetti and sauce in the pan, then serve. If you like cheese, sprinkle with parmesan.
Tipp: For a change, replace the traditional spaghetti with whole wheat spaghetti and/or decorate with rocket leaves.
