Greek Pasta with Shrimp

Remember when I posted My Greek Salad recipe?
I love Greek salad!
I was cleaning out the refrigerator & looking for something to make for lunch.
I started tossing things together and ended up making one of the BEST meals I have ever eaten!

We'll call it Greek Pasta with Shrimp... creative name huh?
Yeah, I'm smart like that.
You can get as creative as you want with this dish.
Like Artichoke hearts?
Toss some in there!

Have a kid who would threaten to barf at the sight of a Kalamata Olive?
Leave em out!
