Shrimp Pasta in a Foil Package

I love to cook dishes that are easy and delicious with a little something different and this Shrimp Pasta in a Foil Package fits that description to a tee. I found it while browsing The Pioneer Woman Cooks blog recently and knew I would be fixing it soon.
This basic recipe gets a twist from finishing the dish in a foil package in the oven, or on the grill as I plan to do now that grilling season is just around the corner. The sauce is simply tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, and white wine. Throw in some shrimp and toss with underdone pasta. This is then wrapped in foil package and finished in the oven for a few minutes to allow the pasta to finish cooking the flavors to combine. You could easily skip the foil package and just cook the pasta until it is done. Another alternative is to replace the shrimp with scallops or use both. Lastly, this really was pretty low in fat and would be a fantastic light meal to have during the hottest days of summer.
Another winner from the Pioneer Woman!
Shrimp Pasta in a Foil Package
The Pioneer Woman
½ cups Olive Oil
4 cloves Garlic, Minced
3 whole 14.5 Ounce Cans Diced (or Whole) Tomatoes
½ cups White Wine
2 pounds Jumbo Or Large Shrimp, Peeled And Deveined
Salt And Pepper, to taste
Fresh Parsley, Minced
1 pound Linguine, Uncooked
Red Pepper Flakes, to taste
Preparation Instructions
Cook pasta for 1/2 the recommended cooking time. Pasta should still be very firm.
In a large skillet or pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for a minute. Dump in the tomatoes and wine. Stir the mixture together, season with salt and pepper, and allow to cook for ten minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare a large parcel of heavy duty aluminum foil. It should be large enough to hold the entire pasta dish.

Throw the shrimp on the top of the pasta sauce. Throw the drained pasta over the top, then pour the whole dish onto the foil. Tightly wrap the foil into a parcel.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and keep warm until serving.
