    I'm just calling this recipe feta shrimp. I used chopped fresh tomatoes without peeling them & I think it tasted fine. I guess you could use diced canned tomatoes instead as well. I reduced the temperature to 400 degrees as I used cooked shrimp instead of the uncooked shrimp. If you do this, you may want to experiment with the temperature & cooking time as you want to make sure not to cook the dish too long. You want to heat up the shrimp but not have them rubbery. I also left out the oregano as my husband isn't a big fan. Next time, I think I'll try a flavored feta (garlic/herb or tomato/basil) for a little more of a flavor punch.  -  29 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    This was actually not so time consuming at all! In fact, it was done quicker than we were ready to eat! I made some angel hair pasta to go with it and it was *very* tasty and delicious. I may even make this for company!! It's a keeper!  -  13 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
