Roasted Garlic Shrimp in Tomato Sauce with Croutons and Goat Cheese

My sister-in-law brought this dish to my attention one night when we combined resources and decided to cook together. This is such an easy dish and yet it's a restaurant quality meal. Perfectly roasted, plump shrimp sit atop a chunky tomato bed spiked with oregano and red pepper flakes, flanked by crispy seasoned croutons and creamy dollops of goat cheese. I mean swoon-worthy, really. It’s warm and inviting and fancy enough for guest but takes little time to throw together. This was adapted from Ina Garten, who also adds in fennel, which would be a great addition if you have it on hand. Serve this with hunks of crusty bread for dipping and light side salad for an easy but delicious meal.
