I used penne pasta because it's the type of pasta that holds better the sauce, so with every bite you get a spoonful of sauce too, which in my opinion is the best thing about eating pasta.

You can make it with fresh shrimp or with frozen shrimp I made mine with a bag of frozen shrimp I found on sale and there's no difference at all, so just use the option you have on hand. I like to cook the shrimp seasoned with garlic, a bit of pepper and just a hint of salt. Then I add to the saucepan a jar of tomato sauce and mix well everything. If I have on hand I like to also add some chopped basil at this point.

To make sure the pasta gets as flavorful as it can be I cook it for 2 minutes less than the packaging directions and then add a couple of tablespoons of the pasta water and the drained pasta to the sauce and finish cooking it there. It's amazing the difference it makes! And at least in my opinion is what makes this Garlic Shrimp Tomato Pasta taste exactly like the one you would find at a fancy restaurant (minus the price tag).
