to enable shortcode in textwidgets, add this to functions.php of your theme:

add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

The plugin includes a widget:

It includes a widget which works pretty much the same as the plugin. Just add as many widgets as you want, and select all the available options from the Appearence > Widgets page.

After activating the plugin, you should find the widget "List Category Posts" in the Appearence > Widgets page and add it to your "widgetized" theme.
