    ChefRed's Note:

    From my mother who is from a little town in Italy near Rome. Must use fresh herbs! Do not saute garlic in oil- it will not taste the same. Garlic, parsley tomatoes oil need to cook slowly together! The idea of the whole cloves is that you don't have to eat them if you don't want to! I just leave them. And remember to cook this recipe SLowly. Lobster or crabs may be substituted for shrimp.

    1. 1
      If you plan on using fresh tomatoes, simply wash, take stem area off, and place in blender to puree.
    2. 2
      Place tomatoes, olive oil, whole cloves of garlic, parsley in large pot and cook slowly for 30 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
    3. 3
      If using fresh tomatoes, it will need extra cooking time of 15 minutes. Garlic cloves should be very soft and sauce should have nice consistency- not watery.
    4. 4
      During last 15 minutes add the shrimp.
    5. 5
      Season to taste with salt and some red pepper flakes if you like.
    6. 6
      Place water to boil in another large pot.
    7. 7
      when boiling add a tablespoon of oil(prevents pasta from sticking).
    8. 8
      Place pasta in boiling water & stir, stir often.
    9. 9
      Put timer on for exactly 11 minutes.
    10. 10
      Drain pasta, place in large platter & mix together with sauce. Enjoy!

      Nice smooth mellow tomato sauce, also didn't give me indigestion like lots of tomato pastas do! I think I will use half basil next time.

      The Flat Leaf Parsley did not flavor the dish. I think it is just my personal ho-hum opinion of the herb. I will try again but with Basil or my favorite Oregano. The Garlic also did not do much for me as whole cloves and no one would eat the clove. Next time I will chop the garlic. Don't know why so much Olive Oil, but I will not use so much next time, if any. Good starter recipe and very easy to customize.
