Greek Shrimp in Tomato Sauce

Ahhh. Am stuffed from dinner tonight. My husband is Greek and I make this recipe for him that I found in an old Greek cookbook I found at a garage sale.

1 lb. Peeled and deveined Shrimp (31-40) size
1 26 oz. jar tomato sauce 26 oz. (I use Barilla fire roasted tomato sauce to save time)
1 med yellow onion diced
3 cloves garlic minced
2 T. Olive oil
1/2 yellow pepper diced
1 T. dried oregano
1/2 cup dry red wine
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
4 oz. crumbled feta cheese
Fresh ground pepper to taste

Saute onions and yellow pepper in olive oil until onions are translucent. Add garlic and toss for 1-2 min, don't burn. Add sauce, oregano, wine, cinnamon and pepper. Simmer for 15 minutes on low. Turn heat to med-high, add shrimp and cover. Simmer for 3-4 min, until shrimp are pink, don't over-cook or they will be tough! Remove from heat and stir in feta cheese and toss untill it is all melted through.

Serve over linquine, thin spaghetti, or angel hair pasta. I've been using that new Barilla Plus pasta which has more fiber, but tastes like the regular. It is much better for you with omega 3 oils and whole grains, but you won't be able to tell the difference.

I had a mushroom dream last night...and I could see just fine.
