1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup pasta cooking water.
2. Meanwhile, season shrimp with salt. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in red pepper flakes and immediately add shrimp, arranging in a single layer. Cook until pink, 1 to 2 minutes; turn and cook until just opaque, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Transfer to a plate.
3. Add marinara sauce to pan and cook until heated through. Add pasta and shrimp; toss to combine. Use reserved cooking water if needed to thin the sauce to your preferred texture.
