    8      pieces        sun-dried tomatoes
      1/4  cup           garlic -- chopped
    1      teaspoon      cayenne pepper
    1      cup           extra-virgin olive oil
   24      medium        shrimp -- peeled

 Rehydrate tomatoes and cut into julienne strips.  Saute garlic and cayenne
 pepper quickly in olive oil in skillet.  Add shrimp and tomatoes.  Cook

 NOTES : Note:  cook fresh shrimp for a maximum of 3-4 minutes or they will
 get tough.
 Lucy’s version: use one and a half times the tomatoes, arugula, and shrimp,
 increase the other non-pasta items, and substitute K Paul’s seafood
 seasoning for salt.  When making this substitute, I halve the cayenne pepper.
