What's Cookin'?

MENTAL STATUS: "Excited". Going away VERY soon...

Well, as much as I love hearing about new books, I love hearing about new recipes. Here's one I made yesterday for the first time: Greek Style Scampi. I got it from Cooking Light, so it's healthy AND delicious. My hubby even suggested I make this for when company comes over.

Greek Style Scampi

6 oz uncooked angel hair pasta

1 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 tsp minced garlic
1 (14.5oz) can diced tomatoes w/ basil, garlic, and oregano-undrained
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 lb peeled,deveined shrimp
1/8 tsp red pepper
6 TBsp (1 1/2 oz) crumbled feta cheese

1) Cook pasta--drain and keep warm

2)Heat oil in large skillet over med-high heat. Add bell pepper; saute 1 min. Add garlic and tomatoes; cook 1 min. Add black pepper and shrimp; cover and cook 3 min or until shrimp are done. Stir in red pepper; remove from heat. Place 1 cup pasta on each plate. Top each serving with shrimp mixture and sprinkle with feta cheese.

4 servings

Enjoy!!
