- Angel Hair Pasta - You can use any pasta you have at home. I love this Angel Hair Pasta because it coats with the sauce the best. Alternatively, you can use Penne or Fusilli or Elbow Macaroni or Shells Pasta.
- Shrimps - Peeled and Deveined. If you're using frozen Shrimps, thaw them by running under tap water for a while and then use it
- Salt and Pepper - To season the Pasta
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil - for the best flavors.
- Red Pepper Flakes - For a slight bit of spice
- Sweet Paprika - A delicious addition to the Pasta sauce. Doesn't make it spicy at all. Rather gives a nice smokey flavor to the Pasta sauce.
- Italian Seasoning - Brings in a burst of herby taste to the Pasta
- Lemon Juice & Lemon Zest - for delicious zestiness and freshness to the Pasta
- Red Onions & Garlic - brings in amazing Mediterranean flavors
- Diced Tomatoes - this is the best of all. Tastes soo good. I have used diced, drained tomatoes. (you can use the juices as well)
- White Wine - I like to use Pinot Grigio. You can use Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay as well.
- Parmesan Cheese - preferably, freshly grated (for garnish)
- Freshly chopped Parsley - for garnish
