Shrimp and angel hair pasta



This is a classic I got out of the April '00 Cooking Light magazine. I hadn't made it for a couple of years. I had forgotten how good it is. I only used a pound of nice sized shrimp because I am cheap and it was plenty. I also used a few more olives. Seriously you can have this dinner on the table in about 10 minutes and it looks and tastes like you spent all day. I paired it with a spinach salad with craisins, mandarin oranges, and shaved Romano. Fantastic!

Ingredients
Cooking spray
2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 cups chopped plum tomato (about 3/4 pound)
1 1/2 cups sliced green onions
1/2 cup sliced ripe olive
2 teaspoons dried dill
1 garlic clove, minced
4 cups hot cooked angel hair (about 8 ounces uncooked pasta)
1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese

Preparation: Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add shrimp; cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in tomato and next 4 ingredients (tomato through garlic); cook 4 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Combine shrimp mixture, pasta, and cheese in a large bowl; toss well.

It would be awesome if you made some youtube clips of how to cook these wonderful dishes! That would be awesome! Who knows, maybe it would get the attention of someone more important than a poor college student.
