Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked linguine
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 20 large shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 1 pound)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Prep Time:

  1. 1. Cook linguine according to package directions.
  2. 2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp, minced garlic, dried oregano, and red pepper; stir-fry 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until shrimp is opaque, about 3 minutes.
  3. 3. Drain linguine; return to the same pot. Add shrimp mixture and cheese to the linguine; toss well, and transfer to 4 serving plates. Top with parsley or basil.
  4. Wine note: The zesty shrimp linguine will match beautifully with the herbal notes and lively acidity of an Italian red from the Barbera grape. Look for Pio Cesare Barbera d'Alba, about $21.
