Step 1: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp to the hot oil and generously season with salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook the shrimps for approximately 2 minutes, flipping once, until just cooked. To a large plate, transfer the shrimps.
Step 2: To make the sauce, heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Then, add the onion and garlic. Cook until the onion is translucent and the garlic is aromatic. Next, add the tomato puree and continue to cook for a minute more. Then, add the diced tomatoes and pour in the wine. Bring everything to a boil before adding the basil, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and salt. Adjust the heat to low and let the sauce simmer.
Step 3: In the meantime, cook the spaghetti following the package directions. Drain well when done and set aside.
Step 4: To assemble, toss the spaghetti and shrimp into the simmering red wine tomato sauce until well coated.
Step 5: To serve, garnish the pasta with Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
