Serves / Yields


Preparation Instructions

Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside. Meanwhile, heat oil in 12-inch non-stick skillet on medium. Peel and coarsley chop onion, adding it to the pan as you chop. Add garlic and cook, stirring from time to time until onion is soft, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and thier juice, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, parsley, black pepper and red pepper flakes, if desired. Raise heat to high, bring mixture to boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 to 8 minutes to blend flavors and thicken slightly. Stir from time to time. Just before noodles are done, add shrimp to tomato sauce, raise heat to high and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until they are just pink. (If shrimp are pre-cooked, reduce time to 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through.) Stir frequently, and reduce heat if sauce begins to stick. Drain noodles, top with sauce serve at once. Garnish with parmesan cheese.

Helpful Hints

Try to buy already-peeled raw shrimp, for this dish. If you cant find them, try for already-cooked, peeled shrimp. Finally, if you have to peel your own shrimp, do it while sauce is simmering on medium-low.
