Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  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.

Delicious and pretty as a picture! Just a wonderful blend of color and fresh flavors. Light, just right creamy sauce--not thick or too rich. I didn't measure precisely, just kind of eyeballed the ingredients trying to keep in proportion to the amount specified in the recipe. I didn't have cayenne, so substituted a couple shots of Tabasco sauce instead. Served over a bed of hot, buttered spaghettini (thin spaghetti) and "Baked Zucchini de Provence"(also from this site), this was a dish I'd be confident to serve to anyone. And it comes together easily with just a few fresh ingredients--cooking the pasta takes longer than it does to prepare the dish itself!

All I can say is I am HAPPY to have found this recipe, it is wonderful! Very well balanced and flavorful, not to mention easy. The sauce is incredible! I will be making this over and over. Here's a hint though, you can also make it with boneless chicken breasts, sliced into bite size pieces. If you like mushrooms, they are a great addition. Thanks so much for this one!!

Incredibly delicious! I made it with low fat margarine and cream and served it over whole wheat pasta - making it a very healthy main dish. I will definitely make this again! But the portion really was only enough for me and my husband. I'd probably double it for 4 people.
