Directions

  1. Peel shrimp and devein; keep chilled until needed.
  2. Chop sun-dried tomatoes into small pieces; place in a heat-proof bowl and cover with boiling water; allow to rest until softened, 15-30 minutes.
  3. Cook pasta until al dente, 8-10 minutes, or according to package directions; start to prepare vegetables and shrimp just as pasta cooks.
  4. Drain softened sun-dried tomatoes from water and reserve the soaking liquid (you may need this later).
  5. In a large deep skillet, heat olive oil on medium heat, and add garlic, pepper flakes (if using), and oregano, just until fragrant.
  6. Add the artichokes, sliced red peppers, chopped olives, and softened tomatoes; season with salt and pepper.
  7. Add the wine, reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-5 mintes.
  8. Check your pasta, taste it to see if it is al dente; drain when ready, and toss with a little extra virgin olive oil if desired.
  9. Add the shrimp and the feta to the pan, and cook over moderate heat until the shrimp curl and turn pink, several minutes.
  10. Sprinkle the dish with parsley and add the juice of the lemon, being careful not to add the seeds.
  11. Fold in the cooked pasta, tossing to mix, until everything is evenly blended.
  12. Add some of the reserved cooking liquid from the sun-dried tomatoes if the pasta seems too dry, use your own judgement as to how much you like to add.
  13. Serve hot, with other foods if desired.
