Seafood Pasta with Tomatoes, Chiles, and Mint
Cooling fresh mint tempers the heat of the spicy tomato sauce in this bountiful seafood pasta.Jenny Huang

This elegant but easy pasta is quick enough for a weeknight family dinner but special enough for hosting guests. You can customize the spiciness to your liking. Choose a high-quality extra-virgin olive oil with plenty of flavor—it melds with the tomato, wine, and seafood juices to produce the pasta’s sauce. Eating the shrimp heads and shells is part of the fun of this dish (they also enrich the sauce), but you can use peeled and deveined tail-on shrimp if you prefer.
