Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.


  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over low heat. Add the garlic and chili pepper then sauté for 1 min, with stirring. Add the Parsley and Garlic Base and strained tomatoes then cook about 7-8 min over medium heat. Reduce the heat, then add the cream and shrimp. Mix well and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  2. To save time, while the sauce is cooking, cook the pasta. Drain the pasta then pour into the skillet and toss delicately.
  3. Sprinkle with chopped parsley then serve in the warmed dishes.
