Pasta Fra Diavolo
2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped (Frozen works great for this)
3 garlic cloves, minced (I used more)
1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes (don't used crushed if so, add more diced tomatoes; petite might be nice)
3 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp dry red wine
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 - 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (I used less dried)
1/2 lb linguine
Optional: 3/4 lb shrimp
In saucepan, heat oil. Add garlic and onion and cook until golden, 8 minutes.
Add tomatoes, paste, wine, sugar, salt and red pepper; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until flavors blend and sauce is slightly thickened, about 20 minutes. Stir in parsley.
Meanwhile, cook linguine according to directions. Drain and divide among 4 plates.
Optional: Put peeled and deveined shrimp into simmering sauce and cook until just opaque in center 3 minutes (increases points by 2)
