Shrimp with Tomatoes & Feta

Any recipe that is special enough for company but easy enough for a weeknight meal is a favorite in my book. All you need to finish off the meal is a side salad and crusty French bread to sop up the delicious tomato and wine juices. —Susan Seymour, Valatie, New York

    Made half a recipe for two. It was good but needs a little more seasoning. Also took longer than 30 minutes to prepare. The shrimp preparation alone took more than 30 minutes.

    I had some feta I needed to use, and I thought this recipe sounded good. It was actually GREAT! I made it with wine and we loved the taste the wine imparts to this dish. The only changes I made was thickening the tomato sauce a bit with a little Wondra flour and white wine mixed together, and using sweet onion instead of shallots. It was fantastic! I will make this again, especially during fresh tomato season.

    I thought the dish sounded good and made it as written with the exception of using only 1 tablespoon oil instead of 3. One worked just fine for cooking the shallot and garlic. I think it needs more of the seasonings. It finally tasted like 5 stars on the 3 day I ate it.

    we loved it, a ittle garlic bread or dipping sauce and it was great all by its self. If it was over something like rice or noodles it wouldn't be as good.

    An instant family favorite! So easy to pull together, and I just loved the flavor of the simple tomato sauce. The feta adds a creaminess. So good! (I did leave out the mint, personal preference)

    Nice and light served over rice. Will also try over pasta.

    Because you can always trust Taste of Home recipes, I made this dinner for freinds without having made it before. Very good...everyone enjoyed it. I made as instructed; however, I live in Michigan so shrimp are expensive but as a special dish...this works!

    I made this for my daughter's family after she had surgery, and they all raved thinking I had spent hours over a hot stove. We all love shrimp (living in Tampa it is plentiful) so I will make it again. No mint and I didn't add a substitute. And I added just a bit more wine. Terrific.
