1 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 (28-ounce) can no-salt-added whole tomatoes, chopped, with their juices
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoons drained capers
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
Salt and pepper to taste
dash crushed red pepper flakes
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled
1 1/2 cups orzo pasta
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. In a 2-quart saucepan coated with nonstick cooking spray, cook onion and garlic over medium heat, sauteing 3 minutes, or until tender.  Add wine and boil about 1 minute.  Stir in tomatoes, parsley, capers, oregano, basil, salt and pepper, and red pepper and cook 5 minutes.  Add shrimp and cook, stirring, 5 minutes, or just until shrimp turn pink.
