Shrimp Feta Linguine

This is my favorite meal EVER hands down and one would think it is difficult to make, but it's not! Sometimes on weekends Kallie is at her daddy's I will make it and eat it for lunch and dinner...all weekend! It's that delicious! So, what are we waiting for? Let's get to cooking!

What you will need:

Bell pepper chopped fine - about 1/2 - 3/4 the pepper
3 stalks green onion, chopped fine
1 Tbsp. Garlic, chopped fine
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can Rotel
1.5 to 2 Lbs. raw shrimp - peeled and deveined
1 cup white wine
1 to 2 tsp oregano
1 container feta cheese
Linguine pasta noodles

The first thing you will want to do is chop/dice up your bell pepper, green onions and garlic. Coat a large stock pot with your 2 Tbsp. of olive oil. Pour in your chopped up bell pepper, green onions and garlic. Saute them until they are cooked, which is about 5 - 7 minutes, constantly stirring so they do not burn. Next, add the can of diced tomatoes and can of Rotel and let that simmer on medium-low to medium heat for 15 minutes. Now, add your 1.5 to 2 pounds of raw shrimp, 1 cup of white wine, sprinkle in the 1 to 2 tsp of oregano and last, but not least, your feta cheese. I also add in a little salt at this point. Cook this until the shrimp are done, which is around 5 to 7 minutes. Serve over linguine, sprinkle feta on top. To complete your meal, serve it with some bread and a salad!

I am on Weight Watchers so I did not want to add up points with the linguine. I ate it as a soup and it was divine! The feta cheese gives it a creamy base. 1/5 of this recipe is 11 points without pasta if you are counting points!

Bon appetite!
