Herbed Shrimp & Feta Casserole

I made this for dinner last night for the first time, and we really loved it. I love feta cheese, and it works so well with the shrimp. It makes a huge dish, so there will be plenty for leftovers too. We had it with a green salad but next time I'll probably serve it with a side of roasted asparagus.
