Fill 3/4 of a pot with water and add one tablespoon of salt to it. Put the pot on heat until the water starts to boil. Add the spaghetti to your water and let them cook for 10 minutes to become soft.
Fry the grated onions in a greased pan until they become golden. Add the grated garlic to the onions and fry them until their smell fills the air. Now add the chopped parsleys to your pan.
Add the tomato paste to your pan and fry them until the mixture becomes bright red. Cut the tomatoes in half and add them to the onions and let them cook until they are soft.
Clean and wash the shrimps and put them in the pan. It is better to use smaller shrimps but if your shrimps are not small enough you can cut them in half and then let them cook on low heat. Now you can add thyme, salt, and pepper.
Drain the spaghetti when they become soft enough. Put them in a dish and mix them with half of our shrimps, you can put the rest on top of your spaghetti.
Our spaghetti with shrimps and tomatoes is ready now. You can decorate it with some fresh chopped parsley and parmesan cheese.
Tips and tricks
- If you want to have your spaghetti immediately after cooking, don't add any oil to the pot. The oil prevents the spaghetti to absorb your sauce.
- You need to stir the spaghetti when you put them in the boiling water otherwise you end up with clumpy spaghetti.
- Use a big pot for your boiling water to prevent your spaghetti become sticky and clumpy.
