2 tablespoons olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound prawns, peeled and deveined

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Briskly saute the onion until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and prawns and cook just until prawns turn a bright orange color, about 5 minutes. Add the wine, lemon juice and diced tomatoes, mixing thoroughly. When the tomatoes have softened, add the basil, parsley and red pepper flakes. Cook for 2 minutes, then fold in the feta cheese. Heat until the cheese has softened. Ladle the sauce over prepared linguine.
