Shrimp and Feta Orzo

This is an old Cooking Light recipe that I can't seem to find online.


1 28 oz can diced tomatoes, partially drained
olive oil
1 c diced onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 c white wine
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 c cooked orzo (1 c uncooked)
1/2 c feta

1. Heat oven to 450
2. Heat oil and cook onion and garlic for about 3 minutes. Add wine and cook down 1 minute.
3. Add tomatoes and seasoning and cook 5 minutes.
4. Add shrimp and cook 2 minutes.
5. Stir in pasta and transfer to a greased baking dish.
6. Top with feta and bake at 450 for 10 minutes.

I really like this recipe, but I kinda use it as an excuse to eat copious amounts of feta cheese. The husband always adds red pepper for heat. Both my kids took one bite and spit it out. They made a dinner of bread and fruit.

Also, while deep into the de-veining of shrimp, I remembered why I don't like deveining shrimp. Seriously? Pulling out their waste? That's kinda awful.
