Greek Pasta with Shrimp


You don't need a recipe for this. I just threw together what was in my mom's fridge and panty and came up with this!

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb thin spaghetti
  • 2 lbs shrimp, cleaned
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • a handful of chopped parsley
  • a handful of halved cherry tomatoes
  • a pile of chopped scallions
  • 1 can of artichoke hearts, drained and diced
  • 1 small can of black olives, chopped
  • Feta cheese
  • Fresh basil
  • 1 lemon plus the zest

Directions:

  1. Start your water boiling for the pasta. Make sure that water has plenty of salt in it.
  2. While the water is boiling, throw the shrimp in a large skillet. When cooked, squeeze the lemon on the shrimp and set aside.
  3. Throw the pasta in.
  4. Over medium heat, cook the olive oil and garlic for a minute.
  5. Then stir in the parsley, cherry tomatoes and chopped scallions.
  6. Then add the artichoke hearts and olives. Keep on low heat.
  7. Drain the pasta, return to pot and pour the sauce over the pasta.
  8. Add black pepper and salt to taste.
  9. Add the feta cheese and mix well.
  10. Pour onto a large platter and tear the basil on top.

Dig in and enjoy!
