Shrimp and Feta Cheese Pasta
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.
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!!!
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!
This was awesome. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of using frozen shrimp. This made it faster and equally as yummy.
Excellent! It was quick to make and everyone loved it. I used canned Delmonte chopped tomatoes (14 oz)Italian Flavoring.
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.
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!
Its quick, its easy, and even the kids ate it! I used penne noodles instead for the kids, and I also used frozen shrimp it was super quick and super delish!
A new favorite! This is very tasty and soooo easy to make. Resturant quality. Followed the recipe exactly, however next time I would add a little more tomato and white wine, only because I like a lot of sauce (personal preference). I highly suggest adding this one to the recipe box. UPDATE-made this again, and doubled the amount of white wine and added an extra tomato. I also served it with 1/2 pound of angel hair instead of 1 pound of linguini. With the adaptations, I would give it 10 stars!
I decided to try this and add a few of my own tricks to this recipe and to even vote 5 stars is putting it mildly!!! My family,particularly hubbie, gave me a standing ovation. I used a huge head of garlic, minced in 1/4 c. + 3 heaping Tbspn. butter in pan to somewhat bring down the taste, cooked shrimp to an almost done consistancy adding 1 tsp PARSLEY and BASIL instead of oregano. Taking pan off heat add 4 oz heavy whipping cream and 1tsp crushed red pepper (careful to add to liking-I like it spicy!) mix in warm pan. Instead of adding tomatoes from the can I diced 5-6 ROMA tomatoes and added to sauce. Happily poured over Linguine and was very giving with Garlic & Herb Feta crumbles. Serve with homemade bruscetta... mmm Purr-fecto!
This was wonderful!! I made it for a side dish at my Dad's birthday bbq and it was the talk of the party! Everyone loved it and was asking for the recipe. I adjusted the herbs and garlic, added much more than called for, and added about a cup of the white wine, 2 cans of garlic and olive oil tomoatoes, and a pound of frozen shrimp. The feta that I used was sundried tomato and basil feta. The dish was to die for! Thanks for such a great recipe :)
This was a delicious pasta! I hate when people rate based on their "changes" but after reading the reviews I did the following: Made 3/4 lb of pasta (only two people were eating, anyhow), used one can of diced tomatoes (not drained) and one chopped tomato, 1/2 cup of wine and fresh herbs. I also used 1/2 chicken and 1/2 shrimp. DELICIOUS! I will be making this one on a very regular basis! What a perfect summer pasta!
This was so good! I increased the wine to about 1/2 a cup using 1/4 C for the shrimp (I used frozen) and 1/4 C for the tomatoes. I also used 3 roma tomatoes and a pound of shrimp. I used about 4oz of feta cheese with herbs. I also added fresh spinach (about a cup of baby) to the tomatoes about 2 minutes before they were done. At the same time I added fresh basil and oragano and minced garlic instead of garlic cloves. This was very good. Next time I will add about twice as much spinach and additional garlic. I had the leftovers the next day and they were awesome as well.
Very, very good...even with individulal variations. I used 3 Roma tomatoe's, fresh Basil and added some mushrooms, onion, zucchini I grew (first time...isn't hard)plus more wine per other reviewer and some Smart Balance with the Olive oil/wine and extra garlic. I use reduced fat Feta and whole grain pasta also. The extra vegetables and sauce balanced the 16oz of pasta...or not, depends how you like it. Definately a "company friendly" recipe.
I was between 3 and 4 stars for this...it is a good pasta meal but the recipe needs a lot of doctoring in my opinion. I added more garlic, tomatoes, wine and used fresh basil. I also cut down the amount of pasta and it still was too much for the amount of sauce so it would have been VERY dry had I not added extra of the aforementioned ingredients. The taste was good though, but I think next time I will add some mushrooms, olives, roasted peppers and/or onions. There is just a little something missing, but it still is worth making...a good base recipe!
Deeelish! I made it for our wedding anniversary dinner and it was wonderful! Next time I make this recipe I will: double the shrimp, double the feta and halve the pasta. My husband suggested putting in some cayenne for a little kick if you like. I also ended up making am emergency substitution as my tomatoes were yucky when I got them out of the refrigerator. I opened a can of diced tomatoes and drained them before adding them to the pan and the end result was fabulous! A nice quick and easy company dish that will impress!
This recipe was fantastic! I did make a few small changes. I added 1/2 cup of wine(chardonay) instead of the 1 tbs the recipe calls for. I also omitted the 3rd tbs of olive oil since I had plently of cooking liquid to cook the tomatoes & spices in. I only let the tomatoes simmer 5 mins before adding the shrimp back in & assembling the dish. This prevented the fresh tomatoes from breaking down too much & becoming a "sauce" instead of diced tomatoes. I seasoned to taste with salt and pepper. I also added a good handful of chopped Italian flat leaf parsley at the end which gave it a nice burst of color and freshness.
This was pretty good and very easy! I used stewed tomatoes instead of fresh and it still turned out yummy! I added steamed broccoli on top which added some nice color and went nicely too.
I have been looking for a recipe like this for a long time. It is like the old German farmers around here made years ago. The only change I made was to process the meats, onions and spices int the food processor unil they were super fine. It turned out a good bit like braunschweiger. Excellent.
Delicious!! My whole family loved this recipe. I used 8oz of bow tie pasta, 28 oz of italian diced tomatoes (drained), 6oz of garlic & herb feta cheese, the seasonings, 4oz of half & half, and 3/4 C of Chardonney and garlic. Will definitely make this again......Very easy recipe.
This was a great recipe. I did change it a bit, I used fresh basil cuz I had some, and I used a 140z can of crushed tomatoes instead and added more garlic.
After reading the other reviews I added extra garlic, sauce and fresh basil. My husband LOVED this recipe. He said it was restaurant good. Thanks for the great recipe!!
I gave this only 4 stars because of the changes I had to make. Since other reviewers said it was not enough sauce, I used 12 oz. angel hair. I used 1-1/2 lbs. cooked shrimp so I added it at the end. I used more wine to cook the garlic & added 1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes, juice and all, 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper and 1 cup fat-free half & half. Used 1 Tbsp. fresh basil & 1/2 tsp. dried oregano and more wine. Had only a 4-oz. pkg. feta cheese w/garlic & herbs that I added with the shrimp. We added fresh parmesan at the table. My husband asked twice what the name of the recipe was because it was so good. Will definitely make again.
I incorporated the following suggestions from other reviewers: used 1/2 c wine; more garlic (1 head in total); 1 can diced tomatoes, drained; and added some crushed red pepper, salt, and pitted and sliced kalamata olives. I tasted the sauce once it was done cooking, but before I added the shrimp, feta, and noodles and I was pretty nervous!! It didn't taste like much, but at least it wasn't horrible. However, once I mixed it altogether, I breathed a sigh of relief -- it was actually pretty good (mostly thanks to the feta, I'm sure)! I wouldn't say it's my favorite dish in the world, but it IS super easy, convenient, and different than most of our "easy convenient" dinners, so I know we'll have this again.
This was a HUGE hit in our house! I used a pasta blend that I had on hand. I added chopped fresh asparagus that I cooked along with the tomatoes and I also added an extra splash of wine. My husband and four year old couldn't get enough. It will become a family staple!
Used 2 cans of diced tomatoes, next time I won't drain it...Good flavor.
I have shellfish issues but my husband loves it SO....I tried this for him. Before I tossed the shrimp with the pasta I removed a portion of the pasta for ME! Worked fabulous! He ate his shrimp/pasta and I had just pasta. I followed recipe precisely except that I used a can of tomatoes because it's winter. This is a keeper for us. We can both eat it and he loved loved it! Esp the feta!
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.
This was so good! I took the advice of the others and added a 1/2 cup of wine and a few splashes of half and half. It was delish, and I will be making it again. I also added a can of black olives.
wonderful! my family loved it!!
Followed recipe exactly except for using fresh basil. Way too dry - even after adding additional oil and wine. And the pound of pasta was overload. A full package of feta cheese (6oz) was also too much for our taste. With some tweaking, this could be very good.
To make this even easier, I used two cans of italian diced tomatoes. Have tried fire-roasted tomatoes w/ great results. I also up the wine to 1/2 cup and use a little more feta. Very good..will make again!
Yummm! Quick and easy, only reccomendation I have is to use jumbo uncooked shrimp. I also used half tomatoe basil feta and half regular. Me and hubby loved it
This was soooooo good! I made some minor adjustments: Used 14 oz can of diced tomatoes with basil & oregano, 3/4 cup of white wine. I added some some red pepper flakes with the tomato mixture and a about 2 splashes of half n half. To thicken the sauce, I added about half a tablespoon of corn starch. YUMMY! My husband typically doesn't care for tomatoes but he went for seconds!
This is soo good, I didn't add as much garlic and forgot the wine but it was delish. You have to try it.
Very good. I didn't have enough feta cheese so I used half feta, half cream cheese. Still yummy. Thanks for the recipe!
I made this tonight for dinner. This was really, really good for a pasta dish without sauce, which is what my family is used to eating. I did take the advice of another viewer; I added an extra tablespoon of white wine, extra garlic (just because my family loves garlic) and I used a chicken bouillon cube to add a little more favor, because viewers stated the dish was bland.
I made this last night and it was fabulous. I did change a couple of things as others did, I used 2 pounds of small tiger prawns, simmered a 28 ounce tin of drained diced tomatoes in the wine after I removed the prawns, simmered for about 20 min. then added 1 pint of whipping cream, salt & pepper and 1 tsp red pepper flakes. I used a little less than 1 pound of pasta, added all the pasta to the sauce and simmered that for a couple of minutes and then added the feta and prawns to heat through, it was very flavourful and light, fantastic recipe that I will make alot. thank you
This was excellent. Hubby and I really enjoyed it!
Great recipe. Used 1/2 cup of white wine as recommended by other reviewers. Also, I divided the amount of pasta by 2 in order to have a better pasta/sauce ratio. Will definitely make again.
I think you will have to make adjustments to this recipe! I had to use one large & one small can of diced tomatoes in order for this recipe to produce the true amount of servings listed. I only used half the feta & it gave the sauce a very balanced flavor. I think if we had used the amount called for, it would have had an overpowering effect. We used about a 1/2 cup of wine. I think this recipe would've been better & alot less work without the shrimp. It was good overall but next time I would leave out the shrimp & add 1-2 shallots in with the base. Even still, people seemed to enjoy this dish.
WOW!!!! This is unbelievably wonderful!!!! My husband & I loved it. I definately recommend this recipe. Thanks Jessie.
Great recipe! I didn't use as much pasta and added spinach in with the tomatoes. The spinach really made it great!!
Tasty, but I probably won't make it again.
A little bit too bland for my liking
How can you go wrong with feta and shrimp?
I used 1/2 cp. or so of wine, 1 lg. can tomatoes diced and drained, extra herbs and 2 pkgs. feta cheese. Also increased garlic and used about 2lbs shrimp, deveined, peeled, and tail-off (frozen). This was fantastic but made enough for atleast 4 people!!!!
My husband loved this one. I had to make a few changes, but overall it was very good. I don't like dry pasta so I added about 3/4 cup chicken broth and 1/3 cup of wine. Unfortunately I could not use fresh tomatoes so I used canned, with fresh basil. 2 TB of olive oil to cut calories and fat and 5 oz of feta (1 cup) and about 2/3 package of pasta. I needed some pepper and a bit of salt, but this reduced calories to about 420 per serving instead of the 600+ listed below. Oh, and I added some brocolli and asparagus. Will definitely make again.
Nice, quick & easy recipe. I love feta cheese, never considered using it w/shrimp before now. Will make it again.
This recipes was good but not fantastic. It was really simple to make. Next time I would use a couple more tomatos, more garlic and maybe a little more wine and also I'd add the feta earlier so it gets a little melty. All in all, with some changes I will be making this recipe again and again.
I made this for my boyfriend and myself for candlelit Valentine's Day dinner....it was quick, delicious, and a big success. Thank you!
This is a really good recipe. Definitely need to increase the wine. Also add some fresh spinach to the tomatoes, yummy and pretty.
Personally, I like "saucier" pasta dishes, this was too dry for me, too much pasta, ended up being dry. Maybe next time will double the recipe for the sauce, this recipe has potential, it does need a kick though, like crushed red pepper other reviewers suggested, I added fresh spinach myself. Great base recipe, don't be afraid to experiment.
My family liked this, but we all agreed it was missing something. I agree with other reviewers that the noodle to sauce ratio is way off; next time I will add more wine & more tomatoes. I think I will also add some veggies to it.
OH MY GOSH!!! This is sooooo good! I added a little extra wine and a little extra oil and used sun-dried tomatoes instead of fresh and let me tell ya...mm, mm, GOOD! I served with Garlic Green Beans (from this site) and this was a wonderful meal! I LOVE feta cheese and this recipe satisfied my craving...this night. Can't wait til next time! I will make this again and again and again....
This dish was so-so, the shrimp and feta combo was really good but it was dry over all. Would make again and maybe put some more tomatoes in it.
Delicious! I was out of white wine and squirted in some lemon juice instead. This had just the right amount of creaminess and seasoning for us. I think it would be good with chicken too.
I followed the recipe fairly closely and it turned out well. The flavors are not very strong so next time I would try to add more spices or use fresh ones. Overall a good, quick meal.
EASY!!!! Next time I make I'll add more wine & probably use diced tomatoes since our home grown are done for the year. Adding more of the basil & oregano will be done also unless I use the Italian diced tomatoes. Using reta chesse that has garlic, basil or tomato adds also. Hubby liked this because it was a "light" sauce for the pasta.
This is a very good pasta. It is not a very "heavy" meal, after eating a lot of it you wont feel sick. I like it with even more feta cheese than it calls for. One comment I would like to make is that it lacks a punch of flavor. There is no real dominant taste which makes it something that goes well with other foods. Definitly worth saving the recipe and making for guests.
It was to bland for me. So for the original recipe I give a 2 star. After some tweaking of adding more wine and garlic and adding some butter I was much happier.
This was so easy to make. My family loved it and the leftovers were great, too. Thanks JWEARY15 fpr a great recipe!
I love shrimp but this recipe is sorely lacking in flavor...I added red pepper flakes to offer something that would step out of the bland. Will make again with adjustments.
Extra wine and extra seasoning
I had to add a lot more wine, but this was really really good with the added wine.
Oustanding recipe. Must admit I added alot more tomatoes, and doubled the oil and wine. Very impressive. Everyone loved it.
Loved this! I scaled down the pasta to about 2/3 a box and used sun-dried tomato feta (and less than 1/2 a tub - that stuff is SALTY. Added more fresh tomato and used a bit more oil and wine to make more of a 'sauce'. This recipe is a keeper!
I don't think enough wine or herbs were used to have the flavor needed. However, the shrimp and feta pair well together.
Very quick and easy meal to prepare. I probably should have taken the advice in adding a bit more white wine. I melted butter into a pan and added the spices along with garlic and chives. I cooked the shrimp on the opposite side of the pan in the white win and just a touch of olive oil. Once the shrimp were done, I folded the pasta into the seasoned melted butter and then folded in the cooked shrimp. I was so excited to eat, I forgot to add the tomatoes. I didn't have feta on hand so swapped with parmesan. Look forward to making this again. Thanks!!!
Good and quick and easy, the best combo. Didn't really measure the herbs and wine, also used a can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes. I will use two cans of diced tomatoes next time or fresh tomatoes. I also added red pepper flakes and some onion powder. Will add this to the rotation.
Good on it's own but I felt it could use some Kalamata olives and some capers. I will make this again. Simple and fast.
Great recipe but needs more sauce. I doubled the sauce and added more tomatoes also. Great the next day!
This turned out to be an excellent dish! I'm an amateur, very amateur cook, looking to step up my game and this was the perfect dish to begin with. I read many of the reviews and, based on them, altered the dish a little. I added 1/2 cup of white wine (chardonnay), I used one more tomato, a half of stick of butter (unsalted), onion powder, garlic powder and red crushed pepper pinches. DELICIOUS and a HUGE hit with the family.
This recipe is out of this world. Sooo easy, flavorful and yummo! The only thing I added at the end was plain black pepper to give it a little kick. Other then that, a perfect meal!
The first time I made this, I made it as written and it was great. The second time, I added a bit more white wine (1/3 cup), plain goat cheese instead of feta, and a can of diced Roma tomatoes (drained). It was just as good, maybe a bit less salty than the original. I especially like how the goat cheese melted down and became like a sauce, blended with the wine, oil, and garlic. This is definitely a dish you can play around with and still expect above average results. Next time I think I'll add a chopped chili pepper...
Wow, this is an excellent recipe. Both my husband and I loved it. I made quite a bit extra and there were no leftovers! I used frozen shrimps and fresh basil instead of dried. Thanks for submitting this recipe, we will definitely make this again.
Very easy to prepare, but I used hand made tomato sauce instead of fresh tomatoes because it's much tastier
This is definitely one of the easiest and most delicious meals I've ever made. Definitely a keeper in my recipe box. The next time I make it I will use more of the white wine... I followed instructions and it did turn out just a bit on the dry side.. Will follow other people's suggestion, but all in all - delicious!!
I love this dish! I usually double everything except for the pasta. The only changes I make are to add black olives and use farfalle (bow tie) pasta. I would also recommend Chardonnay as the wine. I actually prefer this dish cold and it's wonderful to take for lunch!
This dish was just fantastic!!! The slight changes I made was to add 1/2 cup of white wine(it cooks down nicely)to the tomato mixture. I also cooked the shrimp in olive oil and butter along with the fresh garlic. Oh soooo Good!!
This is my husband's FAVORITE! He is gluten and dairy intolerante, so I use rice/quinoa pasta and goat cheese feta instead.
Even after decreasing the amount of noodles, this still was a bit short on taste.
Very Tasty! But way too much pasta. I think you could use half the amt of pasta and twice the other ingredients and be fine. I also used canned tomatoes and they worked great.
I would give this about 4.5 stars. After reading some of the other reviews, I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes and 1/2 cup of white wine. I would also say to add some sea salt and black pepper. Definitely makes more than the 5 servings (more like 8 servings.
I followed previous advice and doubled the tomatoes (I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes), used 1 cup wine, and only used 1/2 of the cooked pasta. It was yummy, I will season the shrimp ahead of time with S and P,lemon juice and lemon zest.
This was a fast and delicious pasta dish.
This was exactly what I was looking for. The only things I changed was to use 1/2 cup white wine as suggested in previous reviews AND I used a Lemon, Garlic and Oregano Feta cheese that I happened to have on hand, which really added to the flavor. Also, since there's only 2 of us, I cut the amount of pasta in half and it was the perfect amount for the recipe. My husband loved it and I will definitely make it again. Want to try different flavors of feta.
Considering how quick and easy this recipe was, we were very please with the results. Great idea for a weeknight meal! Serve with a salad and you're out of the kitchen in well under a quarter hour.
Sounded like this would be tasty esp with all the great reviews but it very bland. Used a wine I never heard of that was given to me.. guess that could be part of the problem. Anyhow, even tho I increased the wine to 1/2 cup to make more sauce I had to doctor it up a lot to make it edible and the changes I made def did the trick. I used 3 fresh tomatoes (will use 4 next time) also added about 1/2 tsp ea of garlic powder and thyme, 1 tsp crushed red pepper, a generous tblsp of real bacon bits, 1/4 tsp of black pepper and kosher salt to taste. Sprinkled with parmesan cheese to serve. All this totally saved it from the trash can! My version I will make again and I may try this one again with a different white wine. If it turns out like my first try I'll just do what I did this time.
This recipe is a great base, but we used shrimp and scallops, and added more of everything, including wine and feta, and added asparagus, and capers... definitely a keeper, though!
Husband said..."restaurant quality" Excellent!! I added Calamata Olives. This one is in the favorites!!
Very good, I loved it. Only thing I did different was to up the wine to 1/2 cup and use a can of fire roasted tomatoes. Makes a little more sauce this way. I also used a garlic, herb feta cheese and would use that again. Very tasty, its a keeper. Thanks for posting this one.
This is my new company meal, easy to make and it tastes delicious. My husband who is very picky loves this dish! Thank you
The overall taste of this was good, but it is WAY TOO DRY! I usually tend to make recipes 'as is', and not modify too much, if at all. I read some reviews that this was too dry, but didn't listen! However, if you enjoy your pasta dry with a grainy texture, then follow the recipe. The pasta seemed to soak up what little liquid there was to begin with - and I even added a little more wine then called for. After plated and eating a few bites, I ended up putting all the pasta back into the pot and adding a can of diced tomatoes to give it moisture, which made all the difference. It was alright, however I don't think I'll be making this again.
I modified just a bit as others suggested and it was a hit with the hubby as well as with my little ones! Used only 3/4 lb of spaghetti and will use even less next time and will definitely add more garlic. Used 1/2 cup white wine (nice buttery chardonnay). May even add green onion next time too. Very pleased with the results so far.
This recipe is awesome. I can't stop making it. Made it again for a dinner party and everyone raved about it. I cooked the shrimp and garlic in the oil but used about 1/2 cup wine. I drained that into a bowl and mix oil and 1/2 cup wine to cook the tomatoes. Once the pasta was cooked I added all the ingredients, tossed the feta cheese, put on a plate and topped with grated Lucatelli cheese.
my family loved this. i saved the garlic and wine sauce i cooked the shrimp in, reduced it and added a little bit to the pasta at the end since other viewers said it would be dry.
