    This dish combines the richness of fresh shrimp and the tartness of feta cheese. Goat cheese could also be used, if preferred.

      I've made this twice. Once, I scattered pine nuts on top and loved it that way. The second time, I added a diced tomato rather than the scallions. To me, it's the feta cheese that is the star of this recipe. Hint - save 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water and after everything is mixed, add back some of that starch-laden cooking water which will help to bind the sauce together nicely.
