Over the last while I have really enjoyed a number of Greek shrimp and tomato dishes such as shrimp saganaki . More recently I came across another one in the form of a shrimp pasta on Kalofagas and it quickly made it to my meal plan. This recipe is really easy to make and you can tell that it will taste great just by looking at the ingredients list. The tomato sauce is a pretty simple one consisting of onions, garlic, some white wine, the tomatoes, oregano, and of course lots of fresh herbs. This pasta would be perfect to make with fresh ripe tomatoes were they in season but in the middle of winter canned tomatoes worked well. I had high hopes for this dish and it did not disappoint! The shrimp pasta in the tomato sauce was so good! Given that all of the recipes that this one reminded me of added feta to the shrimp and tomato sauce combo, I could not resist topping the pasta with some crumbled feta.

Shrimp is one of my favorite seafood choices – this looks absolutely yummy!
What a lovely recipe. I stopped by to wish you a Happy New Year. I hope 2010 brings you health, happiness and prosperity.

Kevin, often the simpler dishes are the tastiest and they benefit from not being fussed too much with ingredients.
Great looking plate, delighted you enjoyed it.

I really love that you love shrimp so much! We are SO definitely going to make this in a few days and I'll let you know how I like it 🙂 (am sure we'll love it but it'll be our first recipe to try from your blog, just found you recently and you never fail to make me salivate…)

You have an award on my blog!!
You can't go wrong with shrimp and pasta. Yum!!
Happy New Year Kevin. Here's to a great 2010!!
This sounds so wonderful!
This sounds delicious, I make something very similar, next time I will definitely be adding some fresh oregano.
Happy New Year. The dish sounds delicious.

This makes my taste buds sing!
I love simple pasta dishes like this. Sometimes the classic flavors just don't need embellishment.
Great touch to add the feta to finish the dish! This recipe looks so fresh and delicious. It screams eat me!
Lydia (The Perfect Pantry) says
With the feta added, it's a kind of reconstructed saganaki. I like that. At this time of year here in the Northeast, tomatoes aren't the only challenge; good tasting fresh herbs can be a challenge, too. I'm so spoiled by my summer herb garden!

Thank you so much for sharing! That Shrimp Linguine looks excellent. I'm a pretty big fan of shrimp myself!! Nice – I love getting cookbooks – I find that I rarely buy them myself.
I make a version of this that is one of my favourite easy dinners. I add a little cream at the end to finish it off and give it some richness.
One of my favorite dishes! Anything with shrimp is a winner.
That looks really really good. makes me want to reach out and grab some.
Happy New Year Keven!
This looks great!
Thanks for all of your recipes, Kevin! I hope you have a wonderful 2010 and I look forward to reading more of your delicious creations!

The great thing about this dish too is it's pretty affordable! I love simple things like that.
It looks awesome Kevin!
it's looking so yummy on this end!
What a funny name for a blog. That's also just about the size of my kitchen.
Tasty Eats At Home says
This is a gorgeous dish. And it sounds as though it comes together pretty quickly – always a bonus! Great recipe, it's making me hungry!
I seriously don't eat enough shrimp! A light tomato & seafood pasta is definitely one of my faavourites.
Entertaining by Evie says
I'm definitely going to try this one! So simple, delicious and colorful. Thank you.
Mouth. Watering! Looks wonderful!
Your shrimp dishes always look amazing Kevin.
ahhhh made this sauce tonight and then made the pasta from scratch (recipe here: http://www.joythebaker.com/blog/2009/12/big-fat-bolognese-sauce-with-fresh-pasta/) it was WONDERFUL as usual!!
I made this tonight and it was delicious. I added some artichoke hearts and button mushrooms. So tasty, thanks. I can't wait to try more of you recipes.
I just wanted you to know, i found your blog yesterday, cooked this last night and my family loved it!! My 7 year old asked for seconds, and that never happens!!! Thank you!
Cheree @ The Morning Latte says
Made this just tonight. Two thumbs up from my family. :o)
Oh my goodness I think I know what Im making for dinner tonight!
This looks, absolutely delicious, have been searching for some new meal ideas and I think this one will go down really well with the family.
Made this a couple of weeks ago, was so good am making it again tonight, taste as good/if not better than made at a restaurant, thanks Kevin for posting this 🙂
It truly was delicious. Thanks for the recipe.
Joanne DiPalo says

새우도 보이고 맛있어 보이네요 ^^
Just a white cooking wine?
Anonymous: I usually go with a white that I enjoy drinking and then have a glass with the meal but a cooking wine will work.
Jodee Weiland says
I'm Italian…this looks delicious! Nice blend of ingredients!
Made this dish for dinner. It was easy to make and very tasty. Just curious how many calories are in 1 serving?
This is one of my most favourite recipes of yours; so light and fresh. My sister doesn’t care for shrimp, so I have also made it with chicken.
This recipe was just okay. I think the right flavors are there but the quantities are weird. Who calls 1 pound of shrimp + 1 pound of pasta a meal for 4? Made it with a half pound of pasta and still had way more pasta than shrimp and leftovers for days!
Vicki Morris says
Great inspiration for an Italian dinner tonight. Used left over roasted chicken, added some capers, a few left over fresh cherry tomatoes to the onion sautee, and a bay leaf — served over angel hair with fresh parmesean reggiano. El perfecto! Thanks again — great recipe!
This recipe of yours is one of my favourites. As my sister does not like shrimp, I sometimes make it with chicken and stir fry some shrimp on the side.
