Add shrimp, onion, garlic and oregano; cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp is just pink, about 3 minutes. Add reserved tomatoes, wine, salt and pepper. Cook until tomatoes are heated through, 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat; stir in basil and pine nuts. Serve over hot pasta or white cannelloni beans, if desired.
