Notes









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.
