Shrimp Marinara
Zesty sauce with shrimp makes delicious, easy meal  By Julie Kay

Peeled shrimp are added to a marinara sauce that has been simmering for hours in the slow cooker to create this Shrimp Marinara.

Seafood may be successfully cooked in a slow cooker, it's just a matter of adding it in the last hour or so of cooking time. Take Shrimp Marinara, for example.

Simmer the tomatoes and seasonings all day and add the raw shrimp an hour and a half before serving. Turn cooker to High when the seafood is added. While the shrimp is cooking, you'll have time to make French bread and a salad to round out the meal. If you want to cut a few corners, substitute already prepared Marinara Sauce for the whole tomatoes and tomato paste called for in the recipe.

2 (14.5-oz.) cans whole tomatoes
2 (6-oz.) cans tomato paste
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 lb. shrimp, peeled
Angel hair pasta

1. Put whole tomatoes and tomato paste and seasonings into slow cooker. Cook on Low for 8 hours.

2. When mixture has cooked about 6 1/2 hours, add in shrimp and turn cooker to High.

3. When shrimp are cooked, spoon over cooked angel hair pasta and serve with French bread.

Serves 6
