"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
shrimp:
1 lb. large shrimp
salt, pepper, and olive oil for the pan

Pomodoro sauce:
4 cloves garlic
4 cups diced fresh tomatoes or halved cherry tomatoes

Directions:
SHRIMP: Heat a swish of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shrimp and season with salt and pepper. Cook until pink, about 2 minutes per side. Remove shrimp from the pan and set aside.

GARLIC BUTTER POMODORO SAUCE: In the same pan, heat just a tiny bit more oil over medium low heat and toss the garlic in. Saute for a minute or two until it smells amazing. Add the tomatoes and broth and simmer for 10-ish minutes. The tomatoes will start to become saucy, and gradually that sauce will start to thicken. This is good.

CAPELLINI: Cook according to package directions.

ALL TOGETHER NOW: Add the butter and basil to the thickened sauce and stir to combine. If it needs thickening, let it hang out on low heat for just a little while longer. Season to taste. When the sauce is ready, add the shrimp back in. Serve the sauce over top of the pasta with a little Parmesan, salt, and pepper.

Personal Notes:
Sometimes I borrow a clove of minced garlic from the sauce ingredients and toss it in the pan with the shrimp for next level garlic flavored shrimp.
