  • 8 ounces bowtie pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 small yellow onion , chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • ½ cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes (or halved sun-dried tomatoes sliced)

  • 3 tablespoons parsley (reserve 1 tablespoon for garnish)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ pint fresh cherry tomatoes , cut in half (about 6-7 ounces by weight or 1 dry cup)
  • 1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives
  • 1/3 cup half and half

Instructions

  1. Bake 2 boxes of Gorton’s Simply Bake Shrimp Scampi in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, and cook pasta to “al dente” according to the package instructions.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan saute garlic in olive oil for one minute. Add the chopped onions and sauté for 5 more minutes.
  3. Stir in the tomato paste and chicken stock and let it simmer for a 2 minutes to create a sauce.

  4. Add in the lime juice, sun-dried tomatoes, 1/3 of the feta cheese, 2 tablespoon of parsley, salt, pepper, sugar, and cook for 2-3 minutes allowing those flavors to marry together.

  5. Next stir in the fresh tomatoes, olives, half and half, and sauté for 3 minutes so the tomatoes release some of their juices.

  6. Fold the baked shrimp into the sauce, add al dente pasta, then serve garnished with more feta cheese and chopped parsley if desired.
