If you’ve followed me for a while you know that I’m fond of seafood. Very fond. It’s always like a taste of home for me. My grandpa was a fisherman in Newfoundland and I have many happy memories of going jigging with Dad and Grandpa. There is nothing quite like the taste of just caught fish!

New York Style Shrimp on Spaghetti

This weekend I made a delicious New York style Italian Shrimp Spaghetti dish with Bertolli® Riserva Marinara. It’s not a handed-down family recipe as we’re not Italian, but it’s definitely a keeper!

Bertolli Sauces at Target

Bertolli® says their Riserva Marinara Sauce with Parmigiano-Reggiano is crafted with only the finest ingredients and I believe them. You can’t fake that fresh taste. California vine-ripened tomatoes and freshly crushed garlic are combined with imported Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and imported Extra-Virgin Olive Oil for an exceptional fresh taste. There are absolutely no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

In addition to the marinara, the Bertolli® Riserva collection of sauces includes Balsamic Vinegar and Caramelized Onions Sauce, Porcini Mushrooms with Truffle Oil, and Asiago Cheese and Artichokes Sauce. Head to your local Super Target for a sampling event if you’d like to taste them all before you buy. And you’ll want to buy their sauces! They really complement a recipe with delicious flavors to elevate the meal to something special.

Do you like shrimp? Here’s the recipe I made. It only takes about 10 minutes to prep and 20 minutes to cook so it’s a pretty simple recipe. It’s considered an appetizer for eight, but it sure seemed like dinner to me!
