So good that Barb ate the leftovers for breakfast the next day! It's hard to get much sauce per bite when you use long pasta, so I used small shells. Added mushrooms, Marsalla wine, and a touch of red chili. Wowsers!

Very good! I didn't saute the shrimp either, but let them cook with the sauce the last 10 minutes, and they turned out great! Also reduced some sauvignon blanc into the onions and garlic after sauting and before adding tomatoes. Will definitely make again, thanks!

This was to die for, Manda! I added a splash of Sauvignon Blanc wine and juice from 1/2 a lemon with some red pepper flakes. Instead of sauteing the shrimp first I just added them to the sauce after it had cooked 25 minutes and let it simmer with a lid on for about 10 minutes. The shrimp were amazingly tender and flavorful cooked this way! We're having leftovers tonight and I cannot wait! Thank you so much for a great recipe!
