Roasted Tomatoes with Shrimp and Feta

Ah, Fall.  The days are getting shorter, the air is crisp and clean-smelling.  We’ve used the fireplace for the first time, and I’ve started buying those cute little pumpkins you see around everywhere this time of year.

And you know what all THAT means.  Yes, a mad rush to use up any last local tomatoes that are bravely hanging on.

I do love fall, but I always get a pang when I realize that the tomatoes and basil are over for another year.  If you are still lucky enough to have some in your neck of the woods, here’s a quick and delicious recipe that combines those beloved tomatoes with shrimp, feta cheese and a few other good things.  It comes together in a snap, and while we like to have it with some bread on the side to sop up the gorgeous garlicky sauce, it’s also pretty dang great spooned over linguine too.
Goodbye, tomatoes…until we meet again!

  1. How funny – I made something almost identical last month. The recipe I was using called for fresh tomatoes, but I had just roasted up a ton from the garden, so I substituted those. Here's the link if ya wanna check it out:
    We had ours over pasta. And I may have eaten an entire half of a baguette all to myself. Deeeeelicious!!!!!

  2. Sadly my tomatoes have gone back to being a gazillion dollars a pound…but luckily enough my bookmarking abilities are still intact! This is so saved for next summer.

    Mindy: looks DELISH!
    Joanne: isn't it so sad when the tomatoes go? TG for bookmarks.
    Piano: Thank you! I actually love this shot so much I made a 16×20 print of it…I'm sure I'll never take as good a tomato picture again as long as I live!

  5. I wanted to let you know that I featured this great recipe on my "What I Bookmarked This Week" post – stop by and see!

    Found this from "Real Simple", and it is, totally, yet tastes like something that takes hours and skill and complicated ingredients. Of which I have none. Like it has five ingredients? Tomatoes, garlic, EVOO, shrimp, and feta. And you can eyeball everything.

    Can I say orgasmic here? I mean, from the standpoint of taste buds, just sitting there waiting for something like this.

    Isn't it fabulous when the simple stuff is also so scrumptious? :)
