Manic Monday Recipe: Shrimp Marinara over Pasta

The weekend is over and it's back to reality! Each Monday we will post an easy recipe, either for the crockpot, quick fix or five ingredient or less recipe. Here's to eating healthy, simply!

Shrimp Marinara Over Pasta
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
12 oz. shrimp, peeled and deveined
1-14.5 oz can Muir Glen's no salt added diced Tomatoes
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
salt and pepper
Before starting the shrimp, it will save time to go ahead and start boiling the water for your pasta!  Add pasta and cook while working on the following:
1.  Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and garlic and saute until softened.  Add the shrimp and cook until the shrimp turns pink, about 5 minutes.  Remove the shrimp, leaving behind most of the onion and garlic.
2.  Add the tomatoes, basil, and oregano to the sauce.  Cook over medium-low heat until the flavors meld, about 5 minutes.
3.  Blend the sauce using a handheld blender.  Let simmer for 5 minutes longer, adding salt and  pepper to taste.
4.  Return the shrimp to the sauce and serve with pasta!
