Shrimp Marinara

Shrimp and pasta, what a great combination. Go ahead and add a bit of cayenne for a little extra kick.

    2 - 12 ounce packages frozen, large cocktail shrimp
    1 - 16 ounce cans whole tomatoes, cut up
    2 - 6 ounce cans tomato paste
    1 cup water
    3 tablespoons minced parsley
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1½ teaspoons Italian seasoning
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon basil
    ¼ teaspoon pepper

  1. Place all ingredients, except shrimp, into slow cooking pot. Stir to combine. Cover and cook at Setting # 3 for 7 to 9 hours or at Setting # 5 for 3 to 4 hours.
  2. Thaw shrimp by running under cold water. Stir shrimp into sauce, cover and continue cooking for up to 30 – 45 minutes. Reduce heat to Setting # 2 for serving. Serve over hot cooked pasta with grated Parmesan cheese.

    Makes 6 servings.
