Roasted Tomatoes with Shrimp & Feta

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.
