Feta Scampi with Shrimp Skillet

The shape of Campanelli pasta has always been a favorite of mine; and yes, I was one of those kids that thought the shape of the pasta affected the flavor ;0
Every twist in this pasta holds a bit of the feta and tomatoes ensuring balanced flavor in every bite.  If you're a fan of traditional shrimp scampi, you are sure to enjoy this delicious skillet dinner.  It's a definite go-to when entertaining friends!

"The feta and fresh tomatoes enhance this
traditional scampi dish!"



INGREDIENTS:
8-10 oz. campanelle pasta (or pasta of your choice)
1/4 cup butter
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 cup red onion, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons oregano
6 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
1 lb. medium shrimp
1/4 cup white wine
3 cups fresh tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 cups feta cheese, crumbled
Sea salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped

PREPARATION:

1.     Prepare pasta according to package directions.  Drain, add 1/4 cup butter to pasta and gently mix to coat noodles.  Set aside.

2.     In a large skillet; sauté the onions in olive oil until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes.

3.     Add the oregano, stir.

4.     Add the garlic, shrimp and white wine.  Sauté until the shrimp just turn opaque (2-5 minutes depending on the size of your shrimp).

5.     Add fresh tomatoes, parsley and feta cheese; stir to combine ingredients and simmer for 3 minutes.  (Reserve 1/4 cup feta cheese for garnishing.)

6.     Add pasta to skillet; gently stir to combine all ingredients.  Simmer for 5 minutes to allow flavors to blend.

7.     Sprinkle reserved feta over each dish.

8.     Serve and enjoy!

  1. Thanks for this recipe. I am trying this tonight. Except, I will have to use canned tomatoes instead of fresh, since that's all I've got.
