- chili pepper : 1 clove (small)
- olive oil : 20 ml

Stages of cooking
Boil spaghetti in salty water. Spaghetti should be “al dente”. While the main ingredient of the dish is boiling, let’s cook the sauce. Chop the garlic and fry it on olive oil.
Cut the chili pepper and remove the seeds. Add it to the garlic.
Peel the shrimps and remove their heads. Add the heads to the pepper and garlic. Stew for about 5 minutes and take away garlic, shrimp heads and chili pepper.
Peel and cut the pumpkin into small cubes, fry on olive oil.
Add chopped sun-dried tomatoes.
Add mashed canned tomatoes and tomato juice. Keep stewing until the pumpkin becomes soft.
Around 5 minutes till the end of stewing, add shrimps. Then add salt and black pepper.
Add the sauce to the spaghetti, mix the major ingredients and serve! Bon appétit!
