Here are all the details.
I’m making Grilled Shrimp with Garlic and serving it with pasta covered in homemade tomato and feta sauce.
Here’s how to make it. Just use this as a template and make the recipe your own.
Salt the pasta water so it tastes like sea water. Cook the pasta until al dente and hold it aside. Don’t over cook it, that’s the kind of thing which can get you kicked out of the house.
Sauce-
1 baseball sized onion minced
1big carrot minced
1 HEAD of garlic minced
6 nice tomatoes
8 oz. feta cheese
5 Tbs. good extra virgin olive oil, more if needed
salt and pepper to taste

Start with 2 Tbs. olive oil and get it hot.
Add onions and carrots and cook them for about 5 minutes and keep them moving. turn down the heat to medium low and cook another five minutes.
Add garlic and tomatoes cook for three or four minutes.

Shrimp-
Two pounds peeled shrimp defrosted
Marinate the shrimp in olive oil, some sea salt and a couple teaspoons of the garlic
Place on a baking sheet and put under the broiler for just a few minutes until the shrimp color up and place them on top of the pasta mixed with the sauce. Sprinkle the feta over the warm pasta and enjoy.
