Ingredients
  Pasta 1 Pound
  Ripe cherry tomato/Pelati 14 Ounce, chopped
  Fresh parsley 1 Ounce, chopped
  Hot pepper 1 Dash
  Fresh langostini 1 Pound
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm)
  Fresh basil 1 Ounce
  Dry white wine 1 Ounce
  Olive oil 3 Tablespoon
  Extra virgin olive oil 1 Drop
Directions

MAKING
1) Rinse well the Langostini with fresh water and the juice of half a lemon; cut their back with a knife to expose the pulp and set aside.
2) In a large non-stick pan, saute' the garlic and the hot pepper in about 3 tbsp of Olive OIl for a couple of minutes.
3) Add the parsley and almost immediately the Langostini; cook them on both sides until the color turn from dark grey (uncooked) to a vivid pink (cooked), then add the white wine, and stir well until it is well reduced.
4) Finally add the pelati or the cherry tomatoes and cook for about five minutes. Remove the Langostini from the sauce and set them aside on a plate.
5) Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook your pasta according to the directions on the box, and, as always, to make sure you achieve a proper "al dente" texture, drain it about a minute before what indicated.
6) Move the pasta in the sauce pan and saute for less than a minute on a medium-high flame, move it into a serving platter and organize the Langostini on top of it.

SERVING
7) Serve dressed only with some fresh basil, a drip of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and maybe one final sprinkle of crushed hot pepper.
