Shrimp with Feta

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 gratin dish)
The sprinkle of calorie-free sweetener helps round out the flavors in this dish by balancing the acidity of the tomatoes and the saltiness of the cheese. It's the same reason Italian grandmothers add a pinch of sugar to their tomato sauces.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup sliced green onions
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
