In a large pot, cook your favorite pasta in well salted water with a drop of olive oil, drain and set aside. This pot will be used to mix the following ingredients.

Remove the tails from a bag of either frozen or fresh medium sized shrimp or rinse thoroughly. Set aside.

- Chop up half a large onion (small pieces)
- Chop up half a yellow and half an orange bell pepper (medium strips)
- Chop up several dried tomatoes and dried red peppers (small strips)

In a large skillet bring olive oil and minced garlic to a sizzle over high heat. Dump in the dried tomatoes and peppers. Sprinkle the mixture with hot sauce, crushed red pepper, salt, and crushed black pepper. Cook until the dried ingredients soften.

Dump in the shrimp and cook until they are either cooked or heated through. Then dump the raw vegetables on top of the shrimp and cook until tender enough to eat – do not over cook.

When cooked dump back into the pot with the pasta, salt once again to taste and either squeeze in fresh parsley.

Pour a jar of Cheesy Ragu’ Roasted Garlic Parmesan sauce.

Mix over low heat until all the ingredients are hot.

Tonight’s libation was Glenlivet over ice! It was a birthday present to myself – Happy 60th!
