1 pound Fresh Shrimps peeled, deveined
4 to 5 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of red chili pepper
1 garlic clove, cut in half (or more)
2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in quarters
1 teaspoon Capers - washed well and drained
1/2 cup dried natural black olives or Gaeta olives, whole (you can use less but we love them and always add more)

2 tablespoons pasta cooking water
Salt to taste
1/4 cup fresh Parsley, chopped (optional)
Using a large high-sided skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat, then add garlic, chili pepper, and sauté for a few minutes. Add tomatoes, capers, olives and sauté for about 5 minutes. Add shrimp, white wine and cook for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until almost al dente, drain it and place it directly into the skillet with the other ingredients and add two tablespoons of pasta cooking water. Cook for another 2-3 minutes then add chopped parsley.
