Some nights, nothing but a big bowl of pasta will do. (If that’s 3 out of 5 weeknights for you, we totally get it.) This week, our chefs whipped up a delicious, Italian-inspired dish that’s sure to curb the most ferocious carb cravings. This twist on the classic peperonata is brimming with savory long green pepper, sweet shallot, and a rich garlic-and-oregano-flecked tomato sauce with succulent shrimp. For a finishing touch, a sprinkle of chili flakes offers a customizable kick, depending if you seek the heat (or not!).
