Capellini Pomodoro with Shrimp

My mom’s favorite pasta seems to be capellini pomodoro – if she can order it, she usually will.

And so, I have set out to recreate it, and it’s pretty tasty, even if I DO keep picking out the tomato chunks. (I don’t like the texture.)

Ingredients:
8 medium tomatoes, cut into 1/2inch pieces. I just used roma tomatoes. Worked fine 🙂
About 6tbs olive oil… not that I measured
3 cloves of garlic
basil (no idea how much. Until it smelled right)
salt and pepper to taste
shrimp (optional – but be kind to your eaters and de-tail them!)

First, boil water.

While it boils, do your knifework. For me, this takes a while, since I am perpetually chasing a hopeful cat out of the kitchen.

When I put the pasta into the water, I added everything else to a large pan and heated it through.

Once the pasta was done, I drained it and added it to the pan, mixing it in and tossing it.

Then I served it into bowls, garnished with some parsley (parmesan cheese optional!), and a delicous piece of garlic bread! 🙂
