This is a recipe I just kind of fooled around with and made up. When I first tasted it I was proud! I felt like I was eating a meal from a gourmet Italian restaurant!

Wonderful mix of flavors! I did make a few changes, though. I used fresh oregano and basil, doubled the amount of tomato, and added MUCH more white wine than the original recipe called for (I used at least 1/2 cup of the wine as the base for the sauce, as others said it was dry). I also added a little bit of salt to the sauce. Instead of just shrimp, I used a seafood mix of shrimp, scallops, and squid and tossed it all with spinach linguini. Definitely a keeper!

The best meal I've ever cooked, and one of the best I've ever tasted. I cooked for a friend who loved it and in a week I had to cook it three times for all the friends that she told about it! One little glitch is that it seems a bit dry with the ingredients posted here, I increased the portions of everything but the pasta by a half and it was perfect. Also, try adding some pitted black olives, it gives it a better look and taste.

Outstanding!!! I thought the idea of feta cheese with shrimp sounded odd, but I was SO wrong! It was very tasty! (I do agree with some of the other reviewers that the pasta to sauce ratio is a bit off; you don't need to use 16 oz. of pasta; just use about 2/3 of that.) I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes rather than fresh, added a few pinches of crushed red pepper and a splash or two of half & half at the end. Oh my goodness! What an awesome recipe! My husband and I both had seconds and there's still some left for my lunch tomorrow. I'd been looking for something new to do with shrimp and now I will look no further! Thanks so much for a terrific recipe!!!
