I prefer sautéing the shrimp separately in olive oil and garlic and then add the tomato sauce to it after.
Great taste overall (especially with fresh herbs) but a bit too much liquid for the sauce. Might want to drain the diced tomatoes. Garnished with freshly grated cheese and basil.
This is great base of a recipe. I switched out a can of diced tomatoes and added a can of rotel. I also used 2 cloves of garlic. Very good!!
This recipe was so good!!! The first time i made it my husband loved it had two plates and even take it for his lunch at work.. Here's what i did: i pre-seasoned the shrimp with a little bit of garlic and onion powder to taste and add some salt to the tomato mixture to taste and turned out PERFECT!!!!
I added a little of my own flavor I used a can of senora verde dice tomatoes with green chilies to give a spicy kick along with a can of diced tomatoes This was off the chain:-)
