Oh, this is a FOOD Blog? {Rock Shrimp Marinara over Linguine}

Rock Shrimp Marinara 
Sometimes it would appear that I forget this is a food blog.... 
and I've got a serious backlog of yumminess that I swear I need to share.....
This recipe in particular was positively YUMMY.
Guess I'm not really a flog blogger yet 'cause I cannot ditch that word.....
I wonder if I get an extra cake plate if I can compensate.
Alas, it is what it is and this was YUMMY!

So, let's get to the FOOD!  
Rock Shrimp Marinara 

1 48 oz. Chopped Tomatoes {I used POMI of couse}
1 48 oz Strained Tomatoes {again, POMI}
3 TBSP good tomato paste
1 TBSP olive Oil
1 small onion diced
1 TBSP minced garlic
2 TBSP fresh chopped parsley {or 2 tsp dry}
2 TBSP fresh chopped basil {or 2 tsp dry}
1 TBSP granulated garlic
1 TBSP dried oregano
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup Cabernet
1 & 1/2 lbs. rock shrimp, peeled {or whatever seafood you like... bay scallops, shrimp}

Heat Olive Oil over medium heat then add onion and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes then add everything BUT the seafood and stir well, reduce heat to low and simmer for 30-45 minutes.  15 minutes before you want to eat heat your pasta water on high.  10 minutes before serving cook your pasta to al dente as per instructions and increase heat to medium high, add seafood and cook stirring frequently for 7-10 minutes until seafood cooked {no longer pink}.

This was super easy & so good....
