How TF To Make it

  1. In a large ovenproof skillet, heat on medium
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and onions
  3. Sautee the onions until translucent, about 5 minutes
  4. Add in the oregano and let oregano bloom (cook in the oil) for about 1 minute.
  5. Stir in white wine and deglaze the pan with it. Let cook down until alcohol evaporates (aka a lot of the liquid cooks down, about 30 seconds)
  6. Stir in tomato sauce, bring to boil, and then lower to a simmer
  7. Stir in shrimp and cook for about 4 minutes or until shrimp are cooked through, stirring occasionally. They should be pink all way through.
  8. Top with the feta cheese and cook just until the feta is hot and slightly melty, about 1-2 minutes more.
  9. Garnish (scatter the top) with chopped parsley if your feelin fancy!
  10.  Serve it up in the same dish! Dip, duck, dive, dab, and dip that crusty bread into the sauciness
