Pasta with Shrimp, Artichokes and Feta

Ingredients: (serves 2)

1. 8 ounces spaghetti or angel hair pasta (or any other kind of pasta you want)
2. 4-6 tablespoons olive oil
3. 5 garlic cloves, minced
4. 1/2 tablespoon lemon zest + some more to garnish.
5. 1 tablespoon lemon juice, divided.
6. 1 large tomato, diced or 1/4 cup sun dried tomato in oil, with a few teaspoons of the oil.
7. 1/4 cup marinated, crumbled Feta cheese, (or however much you want).
8. 15-20  uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
9. 5 artichoke hearts, in oil (more or less as per your needs)
10. red crushed pepper
11. salt and pepper
12. fresh parsley, chopped


Sprinkle salt, pepper and 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice on the shrimp and set them aside for about 15 minutes.

Cook pasta in large pot of salted boiling water with one teaspoon of oil, until tender but still firm to bite- al dente. Drain. Save some of the cooking liquid. Transfer pasta to bowl and set aside.

Add olive oil in  skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic and  some crushed pepper and let the oil heat up. Saute the garlic and pepper until the garlic softens, but do not brown them – for about a  minute.

Add  the marinated shrimp and saute for a couple of  minutes.  Add tomatoes and cook for a few minutes till they release the juice and soften. Add the artichoke hearts, rest of the lemon juice, and lemon zest. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cook until shrimp is just cooked through and turns opaque.
Add  the  pasta to the pan. Toss cooked shrimp, artichoke, tomato mix with the pasta. Let the mix coat the pasta well and then switch off the heat.( If the dish feels too dry, add some of the reserved cooking liquid from boiling the pasta.) Add the marinated crumbled feta to the warm pasta and toss. Garnish with fresh parsley. Drizzle more olive oil, crushed pepper and zest if you wish.

Serve warm.
