  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the shrimp, garlic, and green onions. Cook and stir until the shrimp are pink on the outside, and no longer translucent in the center, about 5 minutes. Set the shrimp aside, and pour in the wine, cream, tomatoes, basil, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the sauce will coat the back of a spoon, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir the shrimp back into the sauce, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Heat through and serve.

made as written except used broth in place of wine. It was ok but not exceptional. I have enough for today too but will not be making it again. Thank you though for sharing it with us.

This is a great company and family friendly recipe. I can't have garlic, so I sub with shallots or sweet onions. When cooking shrimp, don't overcook. It gets rubbery really fast. It should form ...

I used whole wheat fettuccine noodles and tripled the sauce as I wanted to be able to soak up a crusty bread in it. I also used margarine instead of butter. Used the salt, pepper and cayenne p...

4 stars only because I think there should be a little more liquid (sauce) in this meal. If your making over angel hair pasta then it should be enough but I like to have a little more sauce with ...
