  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. 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!


I am a single gal, living on my own; currently working as an Occupational Therapist & living in Cumberland, MD. (It is "God's Country" out here...beautiful!) I LOVE to cook and bake, and love anything that looks, tastes, smells, or even closely resembles a veggie. I LOVE moo-cows, and therefore, cannot bring myself to eat any part of the adorable critters (i.e. NO RED MEAT!!) I love the outdoors, and pride myself on being the master griller on the fire pit. My mother's side of the family is 100% Polish, so I have an inborn passion for cooking...unfortunately, along with that comes a love of eating, too!! But, hey..u only live once, so I say "EAT, DRINK, and BE MERRY!!!"
