Paprika, Cumin and Ginger lend their aromatic flavors to a simple no-cook tomato sauce. You can use the sauce with a wide range of ingredients. (see Variations)
Serves: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes


1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
3/4 cup canned crushed tomatoes in thick puree
1/3 cup chopped cilantro or parsley
3/4 pound penne
1 pound medium shrimp, shelled

In a large glass or stainless-steel bowl, whisk together the olive oil and the lemon juice with the paprika, cumin, ginger , oregano, salt and pepper. Stir in the crushed tomatoes and the cilantro.

In a large pot of boiling salted water , cook the penne rigate until almost done, about 12 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook until it and the pasta are just done, about one minute longer. Drain. Toss with the tomato sauce

Wine Recommendation: With it's compelling spices, strong flavored cilantro and acidic tomatoes, this pasta dish calls for a simple Italian wine --- a pinot grigio for example.
