DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Cook onion, garlic, oregano and red pepper flakes in 1 tablespoon oil in a 4 quart pot over moderately high heat, stirring, until onion is softened, about 3 minutes.
  • Add wine and boil until reduced by half, about 3 minutes.
  • Stir in tomatoes and salt and reduce heat, and simmer briskly, stirring often, until slightly thickened, about 8 minutes.
  • Stir shrimp into sauce and simmer, stirring occasionally, until shrimp are just cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  • While sauce and shrimp are cooking, cook orzo in a 6 quart pot of boiling salted water until al dente.
  • Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water, then drain in a sieve.
  • Return orzo to pot and toss with remaining tablespoon oil.
  • Stir in sauce with shrimp and reserved cooking water, then add olives and salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Spoon 1/2 of pasta into an oiled 13 X 9 by 2 inch glass baking dish, then sprinkle with 1/2 of the feta.
  • Top with remaining pasta and feta, then bake in middle of the oven, uncovered, until cheese is slightly melted and pasta is heated through, about 10-15 minutes.
