This is very simple and really healthy. Should feed four

1/2 to 1 lb fresh peeled Shrimp - Medium work best
2 lbs Roma Tomatoes sliced (about 8 -10)
Box of Spaghetti - boil according to directions (we like wheat)
1 Tablespoon Garlic salt or whatever garlic tolerance you have
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
2 cloves of minced garlic

Heat Olive oil at medium heat and saute garlic cloves until fragrant. Add sliced Roma tomatoes and 1/2 tablespoon of garlic salt - continue cooking covered on simmering for 15 minutes.
Add Shrimp and the last 1/2 tablespoon of garlic salt and cook shrimp through.
Pour over spaghetti and add your favorite Italian style cheese (Parmesan, Romano)

Get a bottle of Milton Park Shiraz and enjoy. Or a good Italian red.

It's very garlicy.....I've seen this where you add Italian seasonings (oregano etc) to it, but we like it simple with the garlic ....but certainly experiment.

About how many Roma tomatoes to a pound?Depends on the size .About four and you might want to de-seed them or use sundried otherwise the sauce will get too juicy !
