Regardless of the method, this popular shrimp preparation is beginner-friendly—and you can complete it in about 15 minutes. For this spicy version, you'll start by making your pasta and setting it aside (easy enough). Next, you'll cook some garlic in oil just long enough to create a pleasant aroma. Then, sautée your shrimp for only about three minutes. Finally, toss the shrimp with pasta and serve with a crisp romaine salad.
