For dinner this evening, I shall be making giant shrimp with thick spaghetti. I shall cook a package of Barilla thick spaghetti al denté and set aside while Laura sautés giant shrimp that have been marinating in extra-virgin olive oil, minced garlic, grated ginger, chopped habanero, sun-dried tomatoes, and Red Monkey Mango Habanero Spice Rub. When the shrimp are cooked, Laura will incorporate the spaghetti. At the table, we shall add crushed red pepper and grated Romano cheese. The meal shall be delightful. There is no doubt.
