Cook the shrimp for about 2 minutes until just cooked through, flipping once. To a large plate, transfer the shrimp.
Step 2: In a large skillet, drizzle 1 tbsp olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the onion and garlic to the skillet and cook over medium heat until the garlic is aromatic and the onion is translucent. Next, add the tomato puree and continue to cook for another minute. Then, add the diced onion and pour in the red wine. Stir well and bring everything to a boil.
Step 3: To the skillet, add the basil, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and salt. Adjust the heat to low and allow the sauce to simmer.
Step 4: Following the package directions, cook the spaghetti. When done, drain the spaghetti and set it aside.
Step 5: Into the simmering red wine, tomato sauce, add the spaghetti and shrimp. Toss well.
Step 6: Serve right away with sprinkles of Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
