I came across this recipe years ago in one of my mother's cooking magazines and it turned out very well. The flavour changes depending on the type of wine you use.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large skillet, melt 1/4 cup butter; cook onion and garlic until tender.
  2. Add half of the parsley (or basil) and shrimp, cook for 1 minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes, wine, salt and pepper; bring to boil. Cook just until shrimp turn opaque and begin to curl.
  4. Remove from heat and reheat just before pasta is ready.
  5. Place cooked pasta over butter in warm serving dish; pour sauce over and toss until pasta is well coated and most of liquid has been absorbed.
  6. Garnish with fresh parsley.

It is an excellent recipe, the only change I made was to add corn starch because I wanted the liquid to be thicker. It is a keeper !
