Orzo with Shrimp

Pulled another recipe out of the ‘ole recipe book to try. This one tastes good but is too complicated for a single serving. The original recipe has you cooking an orzo and feta cheese base, then cooking the shrimp, then cooking a tomato, basil, wine sauce, then assembling the dish to be baked. Whew! I’m tired just typing it all.

So my goal was to modify the recipe to a stove top recipe without, well without creating a brick of orzo 🙂

My first attempt was pretty good. But the sequence was all wrong, so the orzo was ready too soon, and the sauce too late. Then I’m sure the cheese needs to be reduced, tastes good but too fattening!

So this one needs at least one more pass to get the cooking time down and to improve the presentation so it doesn’t look like a pale jambalaya.
