1.  In a large nonstick skillet sauté shallot and garlic in olive oil over low heat until shallot is wilted, about 4 minutes. Add clam juice, wine, parsley, basil, pepper, and tomatoes. Partially cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
2.  When sauce is almost done, fill a 5- to 6-quart pan with water, add salt, and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 1 to 2 minutes (3 to 4 minutes for dry capellini), until just tender to bite. Drain well.
3.   While pasta is cooking, add shrimp to simmering sauce. Cook, stirring, until opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes.

Cut to test. Divide pasta among 6 wide, shallow bowls. Spoon shrimp mixture over pasta and serve.
