Lynne Schaefer found that a favorite recipe for cacciatore-style chicken was also a great way to prepare shrimp.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a 4- to 5-quart pan over high heat, bring 2 quarts water to a boil. Add pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender to bite, about 10 minutes. Drain and return to pan.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over high heat, stir shallots and garlic in olive oil until shallots are limp, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes (with juice), tomato paste, wine, oregano, and basil. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Rinse and drain shrimp; add to sauce. Stir often just until opaque but still moist-looking in center of thickest part (cut to test), 5 to 6 minutes.

Step 4

Stir sauce into cooked pasta. Divide mixture equally among four bowls. Sprinkle with parsley; add salt, pepper, and cheese to taste.

The picture is deceiving. There is way too much tomato paste in the recipe, it completely overwhelms the flavor. I was looking for a recipe with a light tomato sauce which is what the picture looks like and this definitely wasn't that. I would not make it again.
