Boil the pasta and let rest back in the pot after draining. Save about ¾ cup of the pasta water for later use. Heat oil in a medium skillet and add shrimp, garlic, and ½ teaspoon of salt and pepper. Continue mixing the dish until shrimp are opaque (about 2-3) minutes. Pour the shrimp over the pasta and combine. Add saved pasta water. Mix in the arugula, peperoncini and feta and enjoy. 


(Note: This dish pairs wonderfully with a bruschetta appetizer.)
