For dinner last evening, we had giant shrimp with thick spaghetti. I peeled and cleaned a pound of giant shrimp and placed them in a stainless-steel bowl. I added extra-virgin olive oil, three tablespoons of minced garlic, three tablespoons of grated ginger, and Red Monkey Mango Habanera Spice. I placed the bowl in the refrigerator for two hours. I cooked a box of Barilla thick spaghetti until al dente, flushed with cold water to stem the cooking process, and set aside. Laura sautéed the shrimp, and tossed in the spaghetti when the shrimp were cooked. At the table, we plated and sprinkled with crushed red peppers, Parmesan cheese, and Progresso Italian bread crumbs. Laura was soon heard making guttural growling sounds. I took this to mean that she was enjoying the meal.
