Tomato and Shrimp Stew

So, what can you do with a bag of frozen shrimp? In the next few days, I will be giving you three different recipes telling you just that!!.

1 pound frozen medium shrimp, thawed, peeled, and deveined
1 large onion, diced
2 garlic cloves
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 (26oz) can whole tomatoes
dash of sugar
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/2 pound cooked pasta

Cook onion and garlic in 1 tablespoon warm olive oil until tender. Season with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add whole tomatoes and sugar; cook 10 minutes. Add basil.  Season shrimp with salt and pepper to taste and saute with 1 tablespoon warm olive oil in a separate pan for 3 minutes or until opaque. Add shrimp to tomato mixture, and toss with pasta. Garnish with additional basil.
