A fresh, simple, yet impressive dish for you and your loved one, or for entertaining guests.  The beauty is in its simplicity; you only need 8 ingredients.  This also takes less than a half hour to complete so you'll have more time to spend with the people you are with.

I made this to submit to SippitySup's Tomatomania contest.  Oh!  Be sure to use a white a wine that you will drink with it because you only need a little bit for the sauce.  


· ½ pound of medium shrimp, 12-15 shelled and deveined

· 3 large slicer tomatoes concasséd (peeled, seeded, and chopped)

· 2 cloves garlic minced

· ¼ cup basil, chiffonade

· 6 ounces linguine

· 2 tablespoons olive oil

· Juice of half a lemon

· 2 tablespoons of dry white wine

· Salt & pepper, to taste


Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in sauté pan, add minced garlic, sauté for 30 seconds. Add concassé of tomatoes. Sauté for 3-5 minutes until tomatoes begin break down, then add 2 tablespoons of the white wine plus 1 teaspoon of salt and let simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to boil for the pasta and cook according to the box’s instructions. In another pan, heat additional 1 tablespoon of olive oil, season shrimp with salt and pepper, and sear for 1 minute each side, squeeze lemon juice over shrimp, then add them to the tomato sauce. Let simmer in sauce for an additional 2 minutes to finish cooking.

Toss noodles with sauce and basil. Enjoy!

Serves 2.
