Shrimp Oliette

This is a variation of Spaghetti Oliette, which was handed down through my husband's Italian family to mean 'spaghetti with olive oil'. We usually make this as a side dish with olive oil, garlic & seasonings. I've added shrimp, sausage & broccoli to make a delicious light meal!

Don't let the instructions scare you off! It really is not hard at all. It's just that this recipe utilizes a couple of pots & colanders, and a skillet to cook each part.

Add the crumbled sausage and cook until no longer pink. Drain.

In the pot of shrimp water, add enough water to cook the spaghetti until just tender. Drain.

While the spaghetti is cooking, peel the shrimp & remove the tails.
