Seared Shrimp Spaghetti Marinara

Last updated on October 14, 2013 by Liza Hawkins

It’s the time of year where heavy comfort food gets shelved just like winter sweaters get stored away for the summer. Over the next few months I’ll still make a pot of chili now and again, and the occasional rich lasagna – I mean, how could we not?

For the most part I’m ready for light, fresh dishes. Salads, grilled meats and veggies and simple, easy to prep pastas. Here’s one that takes 15 minutes, just perfect for a busy weeknight. (Quicker, even, than take-out!)

Frozen, raw shrimp have been thawed, seasoned and seared while spaghetti boils in salted water.

Marinara is then poured into the skillet with the shrimp, followed by the drained spaghetti, and then everything is tossed together to coat. Serve the seared shrimp spaghetti marinara with a warmed crusty loaf of Italian bread and a delicious, crisp side salad. Yum!
