Shrimp & Feta Cheese Pasta

Last night, Karen and I tried a great new recipe that Karen got from her older sister, Martha. It's Shrimp & Feta Cheese Pasta. It was amazing. The flavor from the feta cheese was great. This is the best home cooked meal I've had in a while. And I've been cooking up a storm lately, so that's really saying something.

6 tbsp olive oil
2 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
5 cloves garlic
2/3 cup white wine
2 lb. linguine
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 can Italian with basil and oregano tomatoes
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1 (8 oz.) package crumb feta
fresh spinach (plastic tub)

In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat 6 tbsp. olive oil; cook shrimp, garlic, and white wine for 5 minutes or until pink. Remove shrimp with slotted spon and set aside.

Bring large pot of lighlty salted water to boil, add pasta and cook for 8-10 minutes, drain.

While pasta cooks, cook tomato, oregano, and basil and spinach over medium heat in wine mixture until tender, 1o minutes. Toss hot pasta with shrimp, tomato sauce, and feta. Serve.

I tried it with chicken instead shrimp and that works really really well too!
