Shrimp Linguine in a Tomato Sauce

When life gives you lemons you make lemonade, right? when your husband comes home with a BOX of Roma tomatoes what do you make? Lots of BLT sandwiches and roasted tomatoes, then what? Always on the look-out for great tasting and quick weeknight meals sent me on the search for something simple and quick to make with my box of tomatoes. Luckily, I didn't have to go far.....
This recipe is really so very easy to make and you can tell that it will taste great just by looking at the ingredients list. The tomato sauce is a pretty simple one consisting of onions, garlic, some seafood stock, tomatoes, oregano, and of course lots of fresh herbs. This pasta recipe called for canned tomatoes but my fresh Roma's were perfect to make this dish fresh and simple. Fresh tomatoes are wonderful when they are in season, but in the middle of winter canned tomatoes work well also. I had high hopes for this dish and it did not disappoint! It's definitely a keeper in the Porter family recipe box!
