This was great! I had fresh from the garden tomatoes so I used those instead of canned. I had to add a little chicken broth while everything simmered down. I also added my shrimp at the end so it wouldn't be overcooked. I served it over curly pasta with fresh bread. My husband said it was restaurant quality. Oh, I also added shallots because I love them!
What a really nice, simple and totally delicious dish! I used canned tomatoes, made the recipe as directed, except that I added my shrimp to the sauce towards the end of the cooking time and let them poach gently in the sauce. excellent quick supper dish, I accompanied this with Citrus Jasmine Rice. Thank you, Good Foods!
