This is a recipe I just kind of fooled around with and made up. When I first tasted it I was proud! I felt like I was eating a meal from a gourmet Italian restaurant!

Wonderful mix of flavors! I did make a few changes though. I used fresh oregano and basil doubled the amount of tomato and added MUCH more white wine than the original recipe called for (I used at least 1/2 cup of the wine as the base for the sauce as others said it was dry). I also added a little bit of salt to the sauce. Instead of just shrimp I used a seafood mix of shrimp scallops and squid and tossed it all with spinach linguini. Definitely a keeper! Read More

Even when I increased the ingredients by a half for everything except the pasta I still found this pretty bland! I used fresh garlic fresh tomatoes and then dried herbs. If I did it over I would use fresh herbs and Italian seasoned canned tomatoes I think...the feta cheese was a good addition. When I asked my husband what he thought he said "bland shrimp and noodles." I also bought fresh shrimp and had to peel and devein them all so by the time this dinner was done I was beat! I am shocked that I couldn't taste the garlic I used nearly a whole bulb! Very disappointing... I'll buy the frozen already shelled and deveined shrimp from now on. It'll be a while before I try this one again. Thanks though. Read More

The best meal I've ever cooked and one of the best I've ever tasted. I cooked for a friend who loved it and in a week I had to cook it three times for all the friends that she told about it! One little glitch is that it seems a bit dry with the ingredients posted here I increased the portions of everything but the pasta by a half and it was perfect. Also try adding some pitted black olives it gives it a better look and taste. Read More

Outstanding!!! I thought the idea of feta cheese with shrimp sounded odd but I was SO wrong! It was very tasty! (I do agree with some of the other reviewers that the pasta to sauce ratio is a bit off; you don't need to use 16 oz. of pasta; just use about 2/3 of that.) I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes rather than fresh added a few pinches of crushed red pepper and a splash or two of half & half at the end. Oh my goodness! What an awesome recipe! My husband and I both had seconds and there's still some left for my lunch tomorrow. I'd been looking for something new to do with shrimp and now I will look no further! Thanks so much for a terrific recipe!!! Read More

Absolutely delicious! I used Farfalle (bowtie) pasta added extra garlic then added fresh spinach to the tomatoes and topped off everything with a sprinkle of crushed red pepper. The feta I had on hand was "Crumbled with Garlic and Herbs" and I would deliberately buy it again for this recipe. I wouldn't hesitate to serve this to anyone! Read More

This was awesome. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of using frozen shrimp. This made it faster and equally as yummy. Read More

This was a definite winner. I made this for a family of friends and everyone loved it. I took the advice of another review and used a half a cup of white wine. Instead of cooking the tomatoes in the oil I used the wine sauce that was left over from cooking the shrimp. If you are using Roma tomatoes which you should use a few more than the recipe calls for.

We didn't have any tomatoes so we used a can of diced tomatoes which worked out quite well. Next time we'll use two cans. The feta was a great addition. Read More

So simple yet delicious! We loved this dish and my husband requested it again just three nights later! I took the advice of another reviewer and used the frozen shrimp (be sure they're fully thawed or they'll add more liquid from the melted ice!) and that saved me a ton of time. This recipe is a keeper - next time I'm making more as it made for a great lunch the next day! Read More
