There was ‘something’ about this Roasted Tomatoes with Shrimp & Feta that grabbed my attention from the moment I saw it. Which was two days ago, somewhere between 3:30 and 4:00 am, while lying in bed surfing Pinterest on my phone. This wide awake in the middle of the night thing has become a bit of a habit. I’ve been told it’s the age, for now I call it my inspirational ‘me’ time.
That ‘something’ that caught my attention may have been the three key ingredients presently residing in my kitchen. I had a nice hunk of feta leftover from our Greek Salad and I always keep a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer for a quick and easy meal option like this.
A quick Google search helped me relocate Roasted Tomatoes with Shrimp & Feta. There were several variations. I chose this recipe from Real Simple and served it over a wonderful Seven Herb Pasta. The tomatoes roasted in garlic and olive oil created a beautiful sauce. The sharpness of the feta melted into the sauce allowing the shrimp to shine through. Truly delicious.
