Spicy Shrimp Linguini

Spicy Shrimp Linguini

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 large onion(s), chopped
6 clove(s) garlic clove(s), chopped
1 can of diced tomatoes (plain)
1 can of diced tomatoes with oregano
1/4 cup(s) red wine
2 Tbsp fresh oregano, chopped, or 2 teaspoons dried
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp black pepper, coarsely ground
1 pound(s) shrimp, large, peeled and deveined
3/4 pound(s) uncooked pasta, linguine variety
1/4 cup(s) parsley, chopped

Heat the oil in a very large nonstick skillet, then add the onions and garlic. Sauté until golden, about 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes, wine, oregano, crushed pepper, salt, sugar, and ground pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the flavors are blended and the sauce is slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. 

Add the shrimp to the sauce and simmer, uncovered, until the shrimp are just opaque, about 5 minutes. 

Meanwhile, cook the linguine according to package directions; drain and place in a large serving bowl. Toss at once with the sauce and sprinkle with the parsley.
