Not my favorite cooking light recipe. It was a bit hot, would leave out the red pepper next time and add lots more vegetables, make it like a primavera.

Yum! I used all fresh veggies: tomatoes, yellow squash, and zucchini; added basil and oregano, and had to use frozen shrimp. Didn't have feta cheese on hand so we just used parmesan. The family loved it!

Simply delicious! This recipe is right on point. I used stewed tomatoes and frozen shrimp because that's all I had. I added my own dried Italian herbs. It took no time to put it together and the taste is superb. I am resisting seconds right now. This will definitely be one of my "go to" meals.

Made this for the first time last night and thought it WAS company worthy. Used fresh garden tomatoes, red bell pepper, fresh basil, oregano and garlic for the sauce instead of the canned tomatoes. A touch of red pepper flakes and lots of cracked black pepper. Had cooked jumbo shrimp on hand, so briefly simmered it in the sauce to heat through. Put it over whole wheat angel hair and topped with the feta. Beautiful and so flavorful ! Served with roasted garlic on toasted bagette. Can't wait to make it for friends.

I always have frozen shrimp in the freezer and have been looking for something other than "stir fry" for a quick weeknight meal. I really liked this recipe and only made one change - I used zuchinni since I didn't have any green bell pepper in the house. This was really an easy, quick and flavorful recipe. Definaetly going into the rotation.

I have been making this recipe for years. I find it VERY easy and quick since I always have everything on hand. I too use frozen shrimp. I have made this for weekday guests with bread and a greek salad. Delicious, quick and looks great.
