This was quite a good base, but I modified it a bit. I used only 1 can of tomatoes, doubled the garlic and wine (so I simmered it a little while longer - uncovered - to boil off some liquid. About 20 minutes all together). I also added basil and crushed red pepper while sauteing the onion and garlic... this added to the flavor a lot. Very easy to make and really delicious. I will definitely make it again. Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe was easy and tasty. I've made it several times now. The last few times I have added more spices (salt, pepper, italian seasonings, basil). I have also used pre-cooked shrimp that were thawed and just thrown them in for a minute or two at the end...much easier. I was also generous with the wine. At first I worried about what wine to use, but now I just dump in whatever I've got going and it turns out great every time.

I did enjoy this. However I did add LOTS of crushed garlic. It is a little bland but it was good. I think what I would do next time is not add the shrimp to the sauce but pan fry the shrimp in garlic butter with some lemon first, then add it on top of the pasta and sauce. This way the shrimp would have more flavour. Was a good basic recipe. I would make it again but with my changes.
