EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If using frozen shrimp, thaw shrimp completely, drain well and pat dry to remove excess moisture before adding to the sauce.

Dry-pack sun-dried tomatoes may also be used in this recipe.

Any long pasta shape, such as linguine or spaghetti, can be substituted for the angel hair.

If you like fresh basil and have it on hand, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of chopped basil at the end of cooking time. For even more Mediterranean flavor, top with 1 cup crumbled feta cheese (4 oz) just before serving.
