Baked Pasta with Tomatoes Shrimp and Feta

I adapted this recipe from one I found on Food Network more garlic, dill and feta, less onion. Feel free to tweak this to your taste.

You will need:
1-2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 cup onion diced 3 cloves garlic minced
2 14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes (Muir Glen)
1-2 Tbs fresh dill finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley finely chopped.
2 lbs raw shrimp salt and pepper to taste
4 oz Feta cheese crumbled
8 oz uncooked angel hair pasta

Start by putting a large pot of lightly salted water to boil and preparing the pasta according to the package directions, set aside but keep warm. Preheat your oven to 425. Heat olive oil in a 12-inch oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat until fragrant. Add onion and saute until softened about 3 minutes. Add garlic and saute an additional minute. Do not let the garlic brown as it will become bitter. Add the two cans of diced tomatoes and bring to a boil turn down the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes or until thickened.

Remove from heat and stir in shrimp, dill and parsley. Transfer to a bowl and place prepared pasta in the skillet. Return the shrimp tomato mixture back in the skillet over the pasta. Top with crumbled feta and bake for 12-15 minutes until shrimp is cooked through and feta is melted.

I was running late on dinner so I baked the shrimp tomato mixture without the pasta tonight. So that is a choice too. I simply poured the mixture over the pasta. If you do this it is very important that you keep your pasta hot, or time it right, because the pasta tends to cool very quickly.

Hope you enjoy.
