Default Fresh Tomato Shrimp Pasta

This is copied from allrecipes.com, to give credit. Lots of good comments there.


INGREDIENTS
8 ounces dry fettuccine pasta
3 cloves garlic
1/2 sweet onion, cut into wedges
3 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 medium tomatoes, chopped
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup spinach leaves
1 pound cooked shrimp - peeled and deveined
8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, diced






DIRECTIONS
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta, and cook for 8 minutes, or until tender. Drain.
In the container of a food processor, combine the garlic, onion and oregano. Pulse until finely chopped. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion mixture; cook and stir until fragrant and almost golden. Mix in the tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper. Simmer for about 5 minutes while the pasta is cooking, stirring occasionally.
Mix in spinach until it wilts, then just before the pasta is done, stir in the shrimp. Cook until heated through. Toss with pasta in a large serving bowl, and mix in mozzarella cheese.


My personal alterations:
**Didn't have fresh herbs, but it was still good.
**Didn't have cheese, but if I did, I would've cut the volume in half.
**Less olive oil.
**Double the spinach.
**I LOVED processing the onions...less crying, less mess!

YUMMY!!
