|A delicious dinner prepared by friend Assunta.|
When I was home from rehab after my knee surgery, my friend Assunta wanted to come over and cook dinner for me, but I didn't have much appetite then, so I asked for a rain check. I'm glad I did because last night I was hungry and I really appreciated the delicious shrimp and feta over spaghetti that she prepared. I considered this a cooking lesson too, because I watched as she prepared this simple and delicious meal.
|Assunta preparing shrimp and feta over spaghetti.|
The recipe calls for using a spaghetti squash, but we didn't have one so we used spaghetti instead. Assunta assures me it is better over the spaghetti squash. I'll try that one of these days.
1 to 1.5 lbs shrimp
3 T olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1 cup diced tomatoes with juice
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 t oregano (fresh if possible)
1/2 t salt
4 oz feta cheese
2 T fresh parsley for garnish
Chop onions and garlic and sauté in olive oil. Dice the tomato and add tomato to onions and garlic.

Add water and wine and oregano and reduce.
|Add liquids and reduce before adding shrimp.|
Add feta cheese when shrimp is done.

Serve over spaghetti.

I even lighted a candle for this special meal prepared by my friend Assunta.
