Comfort Pasta Dish
Christmas has come and gone this year in a flurry. Parties, friends, gifts, acts of kindness and good will to all men. Wonderful things packed in tightly together.
After all this, I need comfort food and a long winter’s nap. For me, a good pasta dish is equivalent to taking a Valium. It soothes the mind and body.
Greek Inspired Shrimp Pasta
Strands of steamy carbs caressed with garlic-cream sauce. What could possibly be more appealing?
Maybe the addition of some seafood, feta cheese, tomatoes, and olives…
Old Family Favorite
Today I’m sharing an old family favorite, a Greek Shrimp Pasta dish that is a holiday gift in and of itself.
Easy Greek Shrimp Scampi Pasta with feta, spinach and olives. An instant family favorite!
Heaven on Earth
Loaded with fresh sautéed shrimp, spinach, feta, grape tomatoes, and olives, in a silky garlic-cream sauce. Plus, it’s ridiculously easy to make.
Heaven on earth!
Try serving our Greek Shrimp Pasta with a loaf of warm bread and a fresh green salad. It’s a surefire way to get your family around the table one more time this week.
Greek Linguine Pasta Ingredients:
- Dried Pasta – I used linguini
- Olive Oil
- Garlic – Freshly minced
- Peeled Raw Shrimp – The bigger the better
- All-Purpose Flour – Or a gluten-free flour substitute
- White Wine
- Heavy Cream – Just a little goes a long way, for an ultra-silky texture
- Grape Tomatoes
- Pitted Kalamata Olives
- Baby Spinach – Or arugula
- Crumbled Feta Cheese
- Salt and pepper
How To Make This Greek Shrimp Scampi:
- Boil some salted water and cook your linguine noodles as directed on the box. Then drain the noodles and set them aside.
- In a medium saute pan, add some oil and butter. Then in a separate bowl sprinkle flour over the shrimp. Once the butter is melted, add the shrimp and garlic to the saute pan.
- Cook the shrimp and garlic for one minute before adding the cream and the wine. Mix it all together and let that cook for another minute before adding the olives and tomatoes. Stir it all together and let it cook for another minute or two.
- Lastly, add in the drained pasta and spinach leaves. Cook until the spinach has wilted down. Season the dish, but be careful because the olives and feta cheese are very salty already.
- Spoon into your serving dish and sprinkle with feta cheese and serve!

Frequently Asked Questions:
What does scampi mean? What is Scampi?
Scampi is another term used for large shrimp or prawns, especially when cooked in butter.
How can I thicken the scampi sauce?
Adding cold butter to the pan with the wine will thicken the sauce as it melts in. You can also coat the shrimp with a heavier coating of flour to thicken the sauce.
Do you have to devein the shrimp?
If you want to avoid eating the shrimp’s digestive track, then I would suggest deveining the shrimp.
However, you can find peeled, deveined raw shrimp at most major grocery chains.
Is This Greek Pasta A Good Leftover Dish?
Actually, yes! This pasta will hold up for 2-3 days in the refrigerator. Rewarm it in a large skillet or in the microwave.

I love the Greek flair to this- the feta and the olives are such a great addition!

What is 3/3 wine? Do you mean one cup or is it a misprint, and you mean 1/3 cup?
Whoops! 1/3 cup of white wine. Fixed!!
I made the pasta last night and it was delicious!
That pasta looks so fresh and yummy! I can't believe there's cream involved because it looks so light…
Oh and that benjamin button costume made me crack up for a good minute. SO CUTE!!
I've been lurking. I admit. Reading your posts on my "smart" phone where I can't seem to post. Totally my bad. I loved the Halloween photos! Especially Benjamin Button. And that pasta is lovely.
HOw fun Sommer…so many kids..oh goodness!!! The decorations look great and I love the costumes..perfect pasta to help you regain your strength..yum
Wow- that was us last year, a gazillion kids, ran out of candy etc. This year we didn't get as many, maybe because it was on a Sunday night? Anyway, we were left with two giant bags of Costco Halloween candy plus a ton still in the bowl. I want to throw it out but feel guilty so it's just sitting in the entry of the house. Your pasta looks amazing, great idea, so comforting:)

Halloween in your neighborhood sounds like the type of event that remains in children's memories for a lifetime – how fun! I love the flavors in your pasta and agree that nothing beats the ease and comfort of a fast and amazing pasta. I rarely cook seafood and really feel inspired by the ease at which you make seafood dishes. xo ( :

Wonderful! I wish I could celebrate Halloween.
That pasta dish looks mighty good!
Looks like you had quite a busy Halloween. I bet this pasta was the perfect thing to tuck into, and the fact that its a healthy diversion from all the candy is really good too. Looks absolutely delish!
Just in time for the next round of holidays that will include the masses and heels tromping through your front yard.
The pasta dish looks lovely. A nice break from Halloween candy and cookies.

This is an excellent Halloween party!! Benjamin Button is soooo cute!! And the pasta dish with feta is amazing!
A creamy shrimp pasta dish will always make you feel good! This looks great.
I can't believe how many trick-or-treaters you get! We had 7. And they all came in one group. And we don't live in the middle of nowhere. Our high-strung dog was better for it!
What a fun Halloween. Love that adorable baby. Looks like it was a blast! I am also enjoying the photos of this pasta you made!YUM!
Wow! What what a crazy Halloween! But it still sounds like it was a of fun. I love that Benjamin Button costume–great idea! This pasta sounds like a perfect way to recover from all the madness.
1000 kids!? we had 5! 3 of which were over 13!! Tat is absolutely crazy.. I wish we lived somewhere that took Halloween so seriously :) Your pasta looks delish by the way
Wow, Sommer! I wish everyone in my hollow cared that much about Halloween-that must be the life. You live in such a cool place…
Oh, and your pasta looks delicious. I would totally eat a bowl. Shrimp is my 'go to' food when I'm having cravings;)
Love your pasta dish with the feta cheese. It's a great way to recover from Halloween candy.
Halloween was big in Florida this year too, which is where we happened to be. We went to my brother-in-laws and he had droves of kids. I was amazed at how many big kids still trick or treat.
I so enjoyed seeing all of these pictures! It seems like you had a wonderful night of ghoulish festivities. Thank you for sharing…and thank you for sharing your pasta recipe too! Talk about a bowl of deliciousness.
That Benjamin Button is too precious for words LOL Love your pasta recipe! Shrimp, feta and pasta, I'm sold and would love a plate of this :o)
hmmnnn, just so happens, I have all those ingredients on hand! Thanks for the supper idea. Also, love the Halloween pics you captured, so thanks for sharing.
Wow, you really do Halloween in style! But I bet it's nice to have the quiet back. Your pasta looks delicious!
Benjamin Button is such a cutie!
Loved your costumes and I am so glad you all had such a bash!
I cant stop laughing at the Benjamin Butler pic..its cute n funny at the same time.I really wish some day to closely be a part of all american festivals and learn the different traditions associated with the..dosent look possible in Vegas..sigh!
Pasta looks really yum..and leftovers certainly make great dishes a lot of times
That looks GREAT.
I'm jealous of your Halloween and wish I lived in a community that celebrates like yours.
p.s. I vote for cream instead of half and half. If I'm going to indulge in yummy pasta I want the cream.
We had 35 kids come by on Halloween. I cannot imagine over 1000 showing up. I'd have to go into seclusion just to recover. Your pasta would help.
Wow Sommer!! You guys really put the "Hallow" in Halloween :D Love the Benjamin Button and soccer playing Hitler costumes ROFLMAO
The pasta dish is GORGEOUS and yes, that serving dish combo too! You know, I could swear I've seen that howling wolves pumpkin somewhere else in the blogosphere, not even 2 days ago!!! It's really beautiful….
I am mesmerized by the Benjamin Button costume! That is way too cute! It sounds like you had one crazy halloween! Your decorations are fabulous. Thanks so much for sharing the pics and the night!
Ben Button and Hitler. Awesome.
I can understand from the pictures that you enjoyed yourselves a lot this Halloween. That's what festivities are all about after all. I like this pasta first because it has the name of the Greek goddess Athena and second because it combines flavors that are very familiar and dear to me. Great pictures as well.
Gosh, you got so many kids at your door! LOL at Benjamin Button….so CUTE! I love your Halloween party! And the pasta looks delicious with feta.
THAT is exactly what I need….I just finished off the tootsie rolls…..lol, really, Pasta Althena sounds wonderful!
Woah! You got a lot more trick-or-treaters than I did. My neighborhood's full of old people, so I just ended up with three. You definitely deserve some yummy pasta as a reward for your efforts! Looks amazing!
Mmm. This is food for the soul. Lovely dish and it looks like a very eventful and fun Halloween evening. That's what it's all about and in such good fun! :)
Sommer what a delightful post…and dish!
I know what you mean about never being able to guess on the amount of trick or treaters.
Love this comforting pasta dish :)
Dang, looks like an all out Halloween extravaganza- Benjamin Button takes the cake! We had just returned from our trip, so did nothing but hand out candy – but at least we did that! Pasta for the weary soul :)
LOL…Oh Dear! It was a massive amount of people. But it looks like was a lot of fun. Loved your costumes. And yes…. thank God somebody else thinks a good pasta is better than Valiun…Carbs are my Prozac lol
My neighborhood was terribly boring, nothing happened here. They are all too fancy schmancy. I was all excited about take pictures of the kids with cute costumes but I got nothing….I was hanging with a bowl of chockies and nobody to give. LOL Ain't that sad?
Sommer, I love this dish. I make something similar but a little simpler. It has spinach but not the other vegetables. I'm going to try your soon. Good luck with your recovery.
Wow, so many trick or treaters in your area, in my community around 100 was the most I ever got. This year was so low, we hardly receive 50 :( still don't know why
The pasta sounds so great, love your Villeroy & Boch serving dishes
I came here to respond to your comment on my blog and now Benjamin Button made me laugh SO hard I can't write :-)
What a fun party! I wanna be thr.
Well, thanks for your kind comments! If I knew you r from Asheville I would asked u for some recos. Next time will do. n BTW if u meet ur frnz from Chai Pani let them know that I loved thr place :-)
Wow, that sounds like quiet the Halloween event. Unbelievable. Nobody came to our house. We live to far out.
No wonder you need some recovery food. Pasta always works well, especially with shrimp, I totally agree.
Oh my gosh! I can't believe how many kids you get!! That's amazing. I wish I was a kid in your neighborhood. I LOVE the costume – he's toooooooo adorable! I have been eating shrimp all week for some reason so thanks for this idea.
OMG that Benjamin Button costume is. a. MAZING. Seriously. Totally awesome. And you must have a LOT more kids in your neighborhood because we had a very slow night… and friends in other neighborhoods in the area have said the same thing, that they didn't get a lot of trick or treaters, either. And before I go, I will comment on the actual recipe, which looks awesome. I never cook with shrimp, but I should. I love me a good pasta dish myself!
looks great and I agree pasta is like that for me as well
I think it's probably wrong… but I actually laughed out loud at the soccer playing Hitler. And I love, love, loved the Benjamin Button baby. It sounds like Halloween was a hit!
I've never liked heath bars but I can't wait to make this dish!
Kenilworth on Halloween is the best! That said, you have now forever ruined my love of Heath bars.
