medium shrimp - peeled and deveined
garlic, peeled and minced
plum tomatoes, finely chopped
I've actually been making a very similar recipe for about 18 years. It was actually taught to me by my landlord at the time. He was from Italy and this was one of his specialties. Unfortunately, tomatoes are lousy this time of year. I used good quality canned. I also tossed in some Italian seasoning. I served it over angel hair pasta, a favorite in my house.
Not bad, but needs some jazzing up. A little weak in the flavor department. I prepared this a little backwards from the recipe directions, first sauteeing the shrimp just briefly in olive oil, then adding the garlic, and finally the tomatoes, basically just long enough to heat them, not cook them to death. To finish I added fresh chopped parsley (this definitely needed that punch of color) and swirled in some butter and some of the pasta cooking water to make a luscious, velvety sauce. Served this tossed with angel air pasta and garnished with a few piquant caper berries.
Didn't have tomatoes, so used ordinary pasta sauce instead. Excellent over pasta shells with small bits of broccolli
Made it as directed and found it pretty boring, so I threw in a whole bag of spinach. WOW! What a difference it made!
This was delicious! I added fresh basil, chopped zucchini, crushed red pepper and a few other spices to the sauce, grilled the shrimp for a couple minutes and served with whole wheat linguine...excellent combination!
So quick and easy--which is key with 2 children under the age of 3--and so tasty!!!
This was a big success with my family. Used frozen, pre-cooked, tail-off shrimp... thawed. Poured shrimp/tomato mixture into angel hair pasta, mixed & served. Very easy and quick!!!!
Good recipe. To cut the acid of the tomatoes I added about a tablespoon of molasses. And I added a few more spices. Very quick and good.
