I planned to make putanesca but wanted something extra--and shrimp was it. Good idea. I also diced and sauteed a baby eggplant for more chunk. Also I had mirepoix made from last nights meal so sauteed that in too.

I don't trust the crushed garlic in a jar. Have heard it goes bad. I used the frozen minced garlic from Trader Joes.
