Spaghetti with Shrimp, Feta and Dill

This isn't the most Fall-ish supper, but I took a little break from soups and cold weather comfort foods last night and made the spaghetti with shrimp, Feta and dill from Real Simple's April 2010 issue.

You need:

spaghetti (cooked to package directions)
olive oil
a lemon
a small bunch of fresh dill
3/4 c crumbled Feta

Saute the shrimp in olive oil and add about 1 tsp of grated lemon zest and 2 Tbsp of lemon juice. My shrimp was already cooked so I was just heating it up... but if it is uncooked give it about 3-4 minutes over medium-high heat or until opaque before you add in the lemon zest/juice.

When the pasta is cooked and drained, toss it with the shrimp, a little more olive oil, the Feta, and dill. I'll confess I added just a smidge of butter. This would be really good with a very buttery lemon sauce but definitely not as healthy.

All done - super easy!



  1. I have two words to say about this: yes please!
