  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add bell peppers, and cook, tossing, until crisp-tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add shrimp, and cook, tossing, until opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in salami and pepperoncini; season with salt and pepper.

  2. Cook pasta until al dente; drain, and return to pot. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to pasta in pot; season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine. Serve pasta topped with shrimp mixture and pan juices.
