Spaghetti with Shrimp

I copied this recipe from a blogger friend -http://theblessedhearth.blogspot.com/2013/07/beach-thyme.html.  That’s for sharing, Faye.
Put your pasta water on with lots of salt until it tastes like the sea or so the chefs all tell you.. grin..
I just buy one of those cheaper shrimp rings that are already cooked..
Anyway..
In a frying pan I put in a few Tablespoons of olive or canola oil, a bit of hot pepper flakes, a bay leaf and some
chopped up green or red or even white onion, a chopped up fresh tomato or two, a clove or two of garlic, kosher or sea salt and freshly ground pepper..
There was no pepper on ours that night as I mislaid my pepper grinder.. daaaaa..
Anyway, let that cook very slowly while the pasta is cooking and take the tails off of the shrimp..
Halfway through I add some chicken stock.. Probably 1/2 cup..
Drain your pasta and at the last minute add your shrimp with a bit of squeezed lemon.. The heat from the pasta will heat them up and they are lovely and fresh..
Lots of chopped basil and Terry loves fresh grated parmesan cheese
