2 T Cajun Seasoning

Heat a large pot to medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the onion, celery and peppers and cook them down about 5 minutes.
Add the garlic and cook another minute, stirring.
Add the tomatoes, basil and seasonings and bring to a quick boil. Reduce the heat and let the sauce simmer about 20 minutes (or longer) to let the flavors develop.
While the sauce is simmering, bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook your noodles to the packaging instructions, about 10 minutes or so to al dente.
Tuck the shrimp into the simmering pasta sauce and let them cook through, about 5 minutes.
Drain your pasta but reserve about a half cup of the starchy pasta water. Swirl the reserved pasta water into your sauce.
Toss the noodles with the sauce and shrimp.
Serve into bowls and top with Parmesan cheese, fresh chopped parsley, sliced peppers, and sliced cherry tomatoes.
