This recipe has been a staple in our family’s rotation for year. We make this Greek shrimp pasta so often, I knew it needed new photos to show it off properly!
Using a few pantry staples, fresh or frozen shrimp, and crumbled feta cheese, you’ll feel like you’re enjoying a fancy dish for dinner, when in reality it took less than 30 minutes to bring together.
Clean up is easy because it’s made in a single skillet (plus a pot of boiling water). It’s a full meal in itself, but also goes great with a simple side salad, a crusty French loaf for soaking up the sauce, or with sautéed snap peas.
I hope you and your family enjoy this simple Greek shrimp pasta dish as much as we do!
