    16 oz box pasta (I used penne rigata bc it's easier for the kids to eat)

    2 lb shrimp

    4 T olive oil

    4 cloves garlic, minced

    1/2 onion, diced finely

    1 28-oz can crushed tomatoes

    1 tsp Italian seasoning

    1-2 tsp crushed red pepper (depending on heat preference-or omit it)

    1 c hot water

    2 T capers

    2 T chiffonade of basil


In large skillet, heat 2 T olive oil. Add 2 cloves garlic & saute until fragrant (approx 30 seconds). Saute shrimp until halfway cooked. Remove shrimp and garlic, set aside.
