Picante Shrimp and Pasta

I just Love cookbooks.  The ones from little churches, or women's groups, or schools are always having some secret goodies in them that you will really cook.  This is  a rrecipe from Southside Elementary Cookbook  .  They put together this little cookbook a few years back for a fundraiser.  I think a cook book makes a great fundraiser by the way,  I really don't care for all of the high price junk that gets sold in the name of fundraising that you'll never use again. What about you.  Anyway, we like this recipe and I haven't cooked it in a while.  Think I need to add this to April's menu.

1 tsp. Vegetable Oil
2 small green bell peppers cut into strips
1 c. sliced mushrooms
1 tsp.  dried Basil leaves crushed
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 c. Pace Picante Sauce
2 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 1-lb medium shrimp peeled and  deveined
3 1/4 cups cooked tube pasta

Heat oil in skillet.  Add peppers, mushrooms, basil, and garlic , cook until tender crisp.  Add picante sauce, tomatoes, and shrimp.  Heat to a boil.  Cook over low heat about 8 minutes or until shrimp are done.  Add pasta, stir and heat through.
