  1. First, cook your favorite pasta in salted water. Use a wide durum pasta for this recipe to make the food look beautiful. When done, gently drain the water into a colander.
  2. Put fresh unpeeled shrimp in a second pot with boiling salted water. Also add a tied bunch of parsley, a whole onion and peeled carrots to the water, and some fenugreek beans. These vegetables and spices will reward the shrimp with a unique taste and aroma. When done, drain the water and separate the shrimp from the vegetables.
  3. Put a piece of butter in a preheated skillet and melt. Finely chop the garlic and red, not very hot red pepper.
  4. Add garlic and pepper, fenugreek beans (seeds), turmeric, and salt to the melted butter, mix well. Let the spices penetrate well into the oil. To do this, you will need 5-10 minutes of frying over medium heat.
  5. Add the shrimp and chopped cherry tomatoes to the skillet. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6.  Pour the cooked pasta into the boiling mass in a skillet. Simmer for another 5 minutes without a lid. Serve sprinkled with chopped parsley.
