Dal Raccolto Capunti is perfect for this dish. Its unique shape captures the sauce inside this tasty pasta. If you have on hand a small dab of tomato sauce (from either fresh or canned tomatoes), assembling this dish is a matter of minutes. Although the sauce is delicate, it should be seasoned generously. This makes a wonderful first course for 4 or add a salad and make it a candlelit dinner for 2.
8 ounces Dal Raccolto Capunti, cooked according to package directions 2/3 cup heavy cream 1/4 cup COLAVITA Marinara Sauce or tomato sauce 2 tablespoons finely chopped Italian parsley leaves 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or 1/8 teaspoon dried Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 1/2 pound small shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails removed
Heat the cream, marinara, parsley, thyme, salt and pepper in a medium skillet over medium heat. When simmering, lower heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Add shrimp and simmer until shrimp turns pink, about 2 - 3 minutes. Add pasta; toss until pasta is coated with sauce and shrimp is cooked through. Taste and adjust seasoning.
