Easy Shrimp Pasta

As part of The Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I was sent three bottles of Crisco Olive Oils to sample (Pure Olive Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Light Tasting Olive Oil).  I was excited because we use alot of olive oil at home between cooking and using it for salad dressing (oil and red wine vinegar).  Crisco is the brand I typically purchase for my other cooking oils but I had yet to use their olive oil line.  You can visit their website for more information about their olive oils.

This is one of those easy recipes, perfect for a weeknight!!!

Easy Shrimp Pasta

1-1/2 pounds peeled and deveined shrimp
whole grain penne pasta
4 Tablespoons Crisco Pure Olive Oil
28 oz. petite diced tomatoes
1 tsp oregano
4 oz. crumbled feta cheese

In a pot, boil pasta in water with one tablespoon of olive oil, until cooked al dente.  Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat three tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add shrimp and saute until pink, about 5-7 minutes.  Add oregano and diced tomatoes.  Once pasta is done, drain.  Mix everything together, folding in crumbled feta cheese.  Serve immediately.
