Pan-Seared Basil Shrimp with Mulitgrain Pasta submitted by Mom Johnson
Great flavor, fresh and easy-to-make...this recipe is from the American heart Association "Love your Heart" booklet. For an extra little kick, I used diced tomatoes with green chilies.

Prepare the spaghetti using the package directions, omitting the salt and oil. Drain well in a colander and transfer to a warm serving bowl.

Meanwhile, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Pour the oil into the skillet and swirl to coat the bottom. Once the oil is hot, stir in the oregano and garlic; cook for 20-30 seconds or until the garlic begins to release its fragrance, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium.

Stir in the shrimp. Cook till the shrimp are just opaque in the center, stirring often. Stir in the undrained tomatoes, basil, wine, sugar, and salt. simmer for 1 minute. spoon over the spagetti and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Garnish with lemon wedges. Serves 4.
