This is from the Chicago Tribune and when I tried it, I understood why the author described it as "something a mobster would eat." It's rich, satisfying and luxurious. And simple to double the servings. You could serve this as an appetizer, or a main course.
- 6 ounces spaghetti or 6 ounces fettuccine pasta or 6 ounces linguine, dried
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 3⁄4 lb shrimp, raw, peeled, tail on
- 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
- 2 tablespoons parsley, minced
- Heat oven to 400 degrees.
- Prepare pasta according to package directions until al dente.
- Heat olive oil in large pan. Add garlic, cook, stirring, until golden and fragrant, about 1 minute.
- Add shrimp: cook, stirring, until shrimp start to turn pink, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, stirring to blend; 2 minutes.
- Toss shrimp-tomato mixture with cooked pasta. Place in a buttered 2-quart casserole; sprinkle feta over tht top. Bake until sauce is bubbly and feta is slightly melted, about 10 minutes. Garnish with parsley.
This recipe was posted in our local paper so I gave it a try. 5 people in my house disliked it. It talks about a sauce, but there's no liquid to make a sauce. Baking the dish after cooking the shrimp and pasta just made it dry and the feta cheese never melted. After we all ate, I added a pint of whipping cream to it, mixed it all around to moisten the pasta and we tried it again. Much better. I think this is missing an ingredient.
nothing rich about this one. sour. and dry as posted. much improved with addition of cream as mentioned by previous reviewer. Better shrimp & pasta recipes out there.
