6 oz. spaghetti
1 pound large shrimp, split and deveined
2 cloves of garlic minced finely
black pepper, fresh grind and salt to taste
1/2 tsp sweet paprika
1 cup pine nuts
6-8 large fresh Tomatoes, diced small
Cook spaghetti until just tender but still firm to bite. Drain and rinse under cold water.
