Shrimp and Feta Linguine
When the weather gets chilly, warm up friends and family with this easy-to-prepare entree from our Test Kitchen. Topped with feta cheese and laced with a hint of wine, the aroma as it simmers will make mouths water! TIP: Look for tomato paste in a tube--it's great when you just need to use a tablespoon or two, and it keeps for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
