Found this one in Cuisine at Home magazine. I wanted to be sure and save as I am cleaning out magazines. Prep time does not include roasting peppers. I do this in advance and freeze.

My husband heartily declared this one a keeper! I used bottled roasted red peppers and just 1 pound of shrimp. I was a little leary of the white wine vinegar in the dish, but it almost comes out as a sweet and sour sauce. Very tasty! Oh, and don't forget the fresh basil. I didn't have any fresh, but had some frozen pesto. The basil is the perfect finishing to this dish. Thank you, TXOldham, for sharing this! I will be making this again. :)
