Preheat your oven to 400°. Boil water for the orzo.
In an oven safe baking dish put 3 pints of cherry tomatoes. Add 3/4 of a cup of olive oil, the garlic, a teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of pepper to the tomatoes. Mix this well. Nestle the feta into the middle of the tomatoes in the pan. Top with the red pepper flakes and a small drizzle of olive oil.
Put this in the oven and bake for 40 minutes. In the meantime prepare your shrimp. In a bowl combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil, ¼ teaspoon of salt, ¼ teaspoon of pepper and the juice of 1 lemon. Mix in the shrimp. Let them marinate for 5 minutes and grill. Cook the orzo and drain.
When the feta is done, take it out of the oven and, using a spatula mix the creamy baked feta with the tomatoes. Add the orzo and then the shrimp. Mix in the basil and serve.
