Shrimp Greque

Makes: 4 servings

Description: This recipe has some of my favorite ingredients - basil, shrimp, tomatoes and feta cheese. It's nice to make for dinner parties or special occasions, since you can make the shrimp ahead and put it in the oven while you entertain.

5 tbsp  Extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp  Garlic, finely chopped
1  Large can whole tomatoes
1/2 cup  Dry white wine
To taste  Salt
To taste  Freshly ground pepper
1 tsp  Dried oregano
1 1/2 lbs  Fresh shrimp
2/8 tsp  Red pepper flakes
1/2 lb  Feta cheese
1 lb  Cooked fusilli or rigatoni
1/4 cup  Fresh basil leaves, chopped

Instructions: 1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a skillet and add the garlic. Cook briefly, stirring, and add the tomatoes. Cook about one minute and add the wine, salt and pepper. Add the basil and oregano.

2. Cook over moderate heat about 10 minutes.

3. Peel and devein the shrimp, sprinkle with salt and pepper. If using cooked frozen shrimp, rinse in a colander and drain.

4. Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet and add the shrimp. Cook quickly, about 1 minute, just until shrimp turns red. Stir as they cook. ( If frozen, put in pan just long enough to heat through, about 1-2 minutes) Sprinkle with red pepper flakes. ( don't use too much, it gets hot!)

5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

6. Spoon the shrimp and any pan juices into a baking dish. Top with the crumbled feta. ( I usually use the whole container-- what's betta than feta?) Top with the tomato mixture.

7. Place dish in the oven and bake until piping hot. ( My recipe says 10 minutes, but I always go longer, at least 30. It's fine to let it go?. It won't overcook)

8. Cook the pasta and drain. Serve the spirals with the shrimp mixture on top . Yummers!!
