Mediterranean Shrimp

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Bev I Am

This was a favorite pasta dish served in one of the Legal Seafood Restaurants in Massachusetts. The feta cheese and Kalamata olives offer their own saltiness, so please gauge accordingly.

This was REALLY good !! The local super had a sale on 15/20 shrimp, so I prepared the recipe with 1 lb. shrimp, 1 can petite diced tomatoes, and just a handful of bow-tie pasta (all I had ).It was a good thing I per-prepared all ingredients in a row before starting to cook -- everything goes VERY quickly, and was truly tasty. DH and I ate ALMOST all of the bowl -- NEXT time I will take a picture ! The only things I would add the next time would be some oregano, basil, and a tad red pepper flakes- just to enhance the subtle flavors -- personal preference. It was a lovely prep and we enjoyed it immensely. Thanks for posting, Bev.
