Directions:

1First, you can start by making the shrimp stock. Here, you need to prepare a stock pot. Then, fill it with the shrimp peels, water, peppercorns, parsley, two cloves of garlic and salt. Then, heat the pot up until it gets boiled. After that, lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the stock until you get a cup full of shrimp stock.

2Next, you need to prepare a large pot and fill it with water. Turn on the heat and boil the water. Then, add salt and pasta to it. For further instructions, you may follow the ones written in the package and then drain the pasta. Next, you may set the pasta aside.

3After that, you need to prepare a saucepan. Heat it up with two tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high. Next, you may add the remaining garlic cloves and red pepper flakes in it. Stir and cook these ingredients for around a minute until the garlic sizzle.

4Then, add the shrimp stock in it and simmer for several minutes. After that, you may add the cherry tomato and the diced tomatoes as well. After the tomato sauce gets boiled, you can season it with salt and pepper. Next, cover and lower the heat to cook the tomato sauce for approximately 10 minutes.

5After 10 minutes, open the lid and cook the sauce until thick over medium heat for around 5 minutes. Next, put the shrimp in it and cook for another 4 minutes. Here, make sure you check the taste. You can add more salt, pepper and the red pepper flakes as well.

Now, it is time for you to combine the pasta with the sauce. Make sure it is finely coated with the sauce. If you find the sauce is too thick, then add more shrimp stock in it. Also, don’t forget to add chopped parsley parmesan cheese on top of the dish. Serve this warm.
