In Galesburg, Illinois, Sue Mackey simmers a flavorful marinara sauce for most of the day. Then shortly before mealtime, she simply adds cooked shrimp, which merely require being heated through. Served over spaghetti, it makes a delicious dressed-up main dish.

- 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
- 1/2 to 1 cup water
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 3/4 pound spaghetti, cooked and drained
- Shredded Parmesan cheese, optional
