Shrimp Angel Hair Pasta with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil

If you click on the photo caption, it will take you to the original recipe (printable) on  Below is my variation.  It's changed enough to be my own now, I think.  ;o)

Shrimp Angel Hair Pasta 
with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil

1/4 lb angel hair pasta (approximately- I used part of a package)
2 cloves garlic
1/2 small onion, wedged
2-4 Tb EVOO
2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes (about 15-18), halved
2 sprigs fresh basil
12 uncooked, not shelled frozen shrimp, thawed & peeled
Parmesan cheese for topping

Begin water heating for pasta.
In small food processor (I used my Handichopper), combine the garlic and onion.  Process until finely chopped.  Heat EVOO in large skillet over medium heat.  Add onion mixture and cook until almost golden.  Meanwhile, process cherry tomatoes (Handichopper will take 2 batches) and basil until coarsely chopped.  Add to skillet with shrimp.  Cook over med-low until shrimp is cooked.  
While sauce is cooking, cook pasta.  When done, drain well.  When shrimp is cooked, add pasta to skillet with sauce and toss gently to coat.  Serve with Parmesan cheese topping.
Serves 2-4.
