Greek Style Shrimp Saute

I love throwing together an easy pasta on a busy work week.  This meal came together in 15 - 20 minutes and was very tasty!  I got the recipe from the Fresh Food Fast cookbook by Cooking Light, and just added a couple of items to the pasta to up the flavor.  This will become a regular dish in our house on those busy weekdays!

Greek Style Shrimp Saute
Adapted from Fresh Food Fast

4 Tablespoons Balsamic Salad Dressing
1 1/2 punds of peeled and devined shrimp
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
12 chopped pitted kalamata olives
1/2 jar marinated artichoke hearts
1 1/2 ounces crumbled feta cheese
Freshly squeezed lemon juice (I used a half of lemon)
1 cup cooked orzo

Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Coat pan with cooking spray.  Add 1 Tablespoon dressing and shrimp.  Cook until done, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes.  Remove shrimp and keep warm.

Add tomatoes, olives, artichoke hearts, and remaining dressing.  Cook 1-2 minutes until all are fully heated.  Add shrimp, orzo and lemon juice, toss to combine.  Sprinkle with cheese and serve immediately.
