Ready In:




  • Peel shrimp and devein; keep chilled until needed.
  • 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.
  • Cook pasta until al dente, 8-10 minutes, or according to package directions; start to prepare vegetables and shrimp just as pasta cooks.
  • Drain softened sun-dried tomatoes from water and reserve the soaking liquid (you may need this later).
  • In a large deep skillet, heat olive oil on medium heat, and add garlic, pepper flakes (if using), and oregano, just until fragrant.
  • Add the artichokes, sliced red peppers, chopped olives, and softened tomatoes; season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the wine, reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-5 mintes.
  • 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.
  • Add the shrimp and the feta to the pan, and cook over moderate heat until the shrimp curl and turn pink, several minutes.
  • Sprinkle the dish with parsley and add the juice of the lemon, being careful not to add the seeds.
  • Fold in the cooked pasta, tossing to mix, until everything is evenly blended.
  • 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.
  • Serve hot, with other foods if desired.

  4. Absolutely phenomenal!!! We loved everything about this dish -- the flavours complement each other so well, and are an absolute delight to the tastebuds. All of us were "mmmm-ing" all dinner. We want to have this every week! It looks beautiful as well. The only changes we made were to use sun-dried tomatoes in oil, as that is what we had on hand, and also didn't even throw in the feta because we didn't have it. I am sure it would be even more phenomenal with! Thank you for a marvelous recipe that we are going to be making as often as we can! Delicious!
  5. This is a terrific recipe! I love all of the ingredients. I made this for dinner when my parents were visiting. Everyone liked it very much and there was not much leftover. Will defiantly make again. Thanks for sharing!


  1. I don't think you even need olive oil in a non-stick pan. This was VERY good. I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of the dried and no pepper flakes. I also added a can of portobello mushrooms. I will be making this again soon.
