Shrimp with Feta and Tomatoes

Things are going really well in the new house! We have been purchasing furniture and decor. Last week our lives were changed when our washer and dryer arrived! This week we have several pieces of furniture to assemble. I am hoping to have it pulled together in time for Mommasita and Pinkie to come for Thanksgiving! 

Shrimp with Feta and Tomatoes
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1 medium shallot
2 cinnamon sticks
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 cup white wine
1 can of San Marzano tomatoes
salt and pepper
1 pound shrimp
3/4 cup feta cheese
optional: pasta
Turn oven to Broil. Cook pasta according to instructions.

Mince garlic and shallots.
Heat oil in a cast iron skillet, add garlic and shallots and cook until softened. 
Season with pinch of salt, coriander and cinnamon sticks. Stir into the pan for 1 minute.
Deglaze the pan with wine. Allow to simmer and reduce by half.
Add can of tomatoes.
Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for a few minutes until the tomatoes with crush easily with the back of a spoon. Crush all of the tomatoes.
If you made pasta to go with the sauce add it to the pan along with the raw shrimp. Remove cinnamon sticks now.
Stir shrimp into sauce and cook until pink, remove from heat.
Sprinkle with feta cheese.
Place pan under the broiler for a few minutes, until cheese begins to brown.
