  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.

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 ...
