Even though summer is here I love my pasta and we have been eating lots of it. This recipe is awesome and a great one to try if you feel like something different and something really delicious! Great for company too!!!
Awesome pasta! I loved everything about this dish, from the feta to the shrimp! The flavors were amazing and it will be made many times again! I served Feta Asparagus and they really complimented each other very well. We loved it! Thanks for posting!
If you love Greek cuisine, this really is a MUST-TRY recipe. I love all the ingredients in this right down to the angel hair pasta and parsley so I knew that I was going to love it: WOW, just the olives I would have chosen, feta, baby spinach leaves, lots of roasted garlic, artichokes! :) YUM, YUM, YUM. Except for adding some basil and thyme to the oregano (I love herbs), I made this exactly to the recipe which we enjoyed for today's lunch. An exceptional dish and easy to prepare. Certainly one I'll making again both for us and for guests, and having added those couple of herbs, I wouldn't want to change a thing. Made for Zaar Stars Tag, and devoured with great gusto! Thanks for sharing this super recipe, Linda.
