Baked Shrimp, Feta and Tomatoes RecipeThis delicious shrimp, tomato, and feta recipe was suggested by a reader.  The combination was so unusual that it struck my fancy immediately and I tried it the very next night. Luckily, this pasta recipe is easy to make so it comes together very quickly. I adapted it from several similar recipes I found around the web and made it my own.

Baked Shrimp, Feta and Tomatoes Recipe

The salty feta is such a great contrast to the sweetness of the shrimp. Tossed with a simple tomato sauce this is a pasta I will most definitely make again.

[print_this]Baked Shrimp, Feta and Tomato Sauce
(serves 1-2)

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 small can whole tomatoes
1 tablespoon parsley, minced
8 shrimp, shelled, deveined and peeled
~1/4 cup crumbled feta
2 servings of pasta

Preheat your oven to 400F. Put a pot of water on to boil for the pasta. In a small oven proof skillet sweat the onion in olive oil until translucent. Add garlic and continue cooking for another minute. Roughly chop the tomatoes then add along with their juices and the parsley. Simmer for 15 minutes or until thickened. Stir in prawns and sprinkle the feta on top. Transfer to the oven. Bake until prawns are cooked and feta is melted, it should take about 12 minutes. In the meantime add 2 tablespoons of salt to your water pot and cook your pasta.

Taste the sauce and add salt and pepper as necessary; then toss with the pasta.[/print_this]

I was out at a restaurant this weekend and had shrimp with feta for the first time– I was surprised at how well they went together. Your recipe looks great.

Happycook – I hope you get to it!

Sylvie – me too! I wish I had made more so there would be leftovers. Actually I did but I ended up eating it all.

Jen – this was my first time too!

Kim – I have obviously been missing out.

Bridgett – I swear I could, steamed, roasted, BBQed… any way it is so fab.
