Prawn, Tomato, and Feta Pan-Fry

3 tbs. olive oil
2 small or 1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 x 14 oz. cans chopped tomatoes, with their juices
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 lb. large, uncooked shrimp, peeled and cleaned
4 oz. crumbled feta cheese
fresh basil, roughly chopped
hot, cooked orzo to serve, if you like

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and cook the onion and garlic gently until soft and lightly tinged with brown, 10-12 minutes. Add the tomatoes and sugar and simmer for 5 minutes. Throw in the shrimp, season well with salt and pepper, and cook gently for 5 minutes, or until shrimp is just cooked through. Stir in most of the feta and basil. Serve over orzo pasta topped with remaining feta and basil.
