Capellini with Shrimp and Creamy Tomato Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound peeled large shrimp
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (14-oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 pound capellini (angel hair pasta)

Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium high heat until it shimmers; then cook shrimp and garlic with oregano, salt and pepper, turning once, until golden, about 2 minutes total.  Add tomatoes with juice, scraping up any brown bits from bottom of skillet.  Add cream and briskly simmer until sauce has thickened slightly, about 1 minute.  Stir in lemon juice.

Meanwhile, cook capellini in pot of boiling salted water until al dente.  Serve immediately with shrimp and sauce.

Serves 4.
