Recipe Details

Story

This recipe is baked ziti’s Greek cousin. We’re using whole-wheat pasta for its sweet, nutty flavor, baking it to bubbly bliss with tender shrimp, two kinds of tomatoes, sweet peppers, and briny feta. Fresh oregano adds an aromatic, earthy touch to every nook and ridge.

    While pasta cooks, pat shrimp dry with paper towel and season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a medium ovenproof pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until opaque and just pink, 4-6 minutes total. Using a slotted spoon, transfer shrimp to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm until Step 5. Wipe pan clean for next step.

  4. Make tomato sauce

    Return pan from shrimp to medium-high heat with 1 tablespoon olive oil. When oil is shimmering, add whole grape tomatoes, mini peppers, and onion. Sauté, stirring, until onion is translucent and tomatoes are softening, 5 minutes. Add garlic and ½ cup tomato purée; cook, stirring and pressing whole tomatoes, until a sauce has formed, 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper. Save remaining tomato purée for another recipe.

Adding 1 tablespoon at a time, stir in reserved pasta cooking water until sauce is silky and clings to noodles. Sprinkle remaining feta over top in an even layer, then transfer to oven. Bake until shrimp is warmed through and feta is melty, 7-10 minutes.
