Pasta With Shrimp and Wine

This is one of the best pasta/seafood dishes I have ever tasted! I know the recipe came from a cookbook, but a friend gave it to me several years ago (xeroxed the page) and the title of the book doesn't appear. Sorry I can't give credit! I've made it with scallops, too, and it's just as good.

Great meal. I decided to use penne pasta instead. I also added roasted bell peppers and zucchini. Everything was wonderful.

I cooked this up today with a twist ,I substituted 1 can of Rotel Original for the tomatoes it was AWESOME ******* adds a nice bite of heat & spice to the dish enjoyed it so much...

This was very good, but somehow we could have done without the tomatoes. I might try it again without them, I also added a little more garlic. I used wine and a bit of chicken broth to stretch the sauce for 3 of us. I also used the paste bouillon instead of the granulated. Thanks anyway for a good meal and we all cleaned our plates.
