  1. Prepare the pasta using the package directions, omitting the salt. Drain well in a colander. Transfer to a serving bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the garlic and oregano for 20 to 30 seconds, or until the garlic is fragrant, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat to medium.
  3. Stir in the shrimp. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the shrimp are pink on the outside, stirring frequently. Stir in the tomatoes with liquid, basil, wine, sugar, and salt. Cook for 1 minute. Spoon the sauce over the pasta. Sprinkle with the Parmesan. Garnish with the lemon wedges.

Tip: Serving size 3 ounces shrimp and 1 cup spaghetti.
