This is excellent. A wonderful diner can be ready in under 30 minutes. The amount of cheese was reduced considerably but still provided the flavor. The feta was crumbled over the sauce, covered and stirred together prior to serving. The dish was then sprinkled with a touch additional feta and fresh basil. We will miss you Papa D.
We enjoyed this quick to prepare, flavorful shrimp dish for dinner tonight. The only change I made was to use Spanish green manzanilla olives, as I found I used up the last of my kalamatas making other Greek recipes this week. This was fine and worked in the dish. Thanks for posting, Papa D! Made for ZWT6.
Very nice flavors!
