As always if you are on the neutropenic diet, make sure to thoroughly cook the shrimp.
Red pepper flakes are quite spicy. If you want less heat, add a whole dried red pepper to the oil along with the minced garlic and cook them together for 2 minutes or until the garlic is just turning golden. Carry on as per recipe. Just before serving the pasta, remove it from the pan so that no one bites into it.
