It is a great dish with a lot of flavor. I used a 28-oz can of diced tomatoes but drained the liquid before putting it in. Next time I am going to try fresh tomatoes; will be more favorful. I love feta cheese and I would add twice the amount. All in all, excellent dish..definitely a 5-star receipe!

Very tasty indeed, but this did not in the least surprise me as it was the list of ingredients that had first drawn me to this recipe. I used a can of tomatoes (Aldi's excellent Italian tomatoes) and I omitted the "dash (of) red pepper" because I'm not sure quite what that meant and because it sounded like something hot and spicy, which I don't like. For us, this recipe was wonderfully flavoursome just as I made it. We ate it with noodles. Of course we loved the shrimps, but we also loved everything else in the dish: a great blend of flavours. I'm thinking that I'll make this again with canned salmon, which would make for a wonderfully quick and easy mid-week meal! Thanks for sharing this recipe, Marlitt!

This was very nice and I served it over a bed of noodles. Served with salad and a crusty bread. This was made for a Romantic Greek dinner in ZWT4 for the Chic Chefs.
