Healthy Pasta with Shrimp (WW friendly)

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoon capers, drained
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup chicken broth, white wine or water
1 can of chopped/diced tomatoes, drained
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 1/2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
orzo pasta or a very small pasta, cooked and drained
Total Time: 20 minutes
Shell and devein shrimp. In a large skillet heat olive oil and then add capers and garlic; cook stirring for 1-2 minutes. Add shrimp, broth, tomatoes, oregano and tarragon to skillet and saute for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally or until shrimp is pink. Remove from heat and stir in feta cheese; toss to combine. Spoon shrimp mixture over the orzo; toss.
A few notes: I love to purchase the large raw deveined shrimp at Food Lion, when it is buy one get one free which is most of the time. I always keep it frozen until time to use and then I just run warm water over it. I looked all over Wilkes for orzo and finally bought some at Wholefoods Market in Winston. Any small pasta will work, but I really did love the orzo. Finally, do not be frightened of the feta cheese! We actually added more!
