Garlic Parmesan Shrimp with Orzo

I often forget about orzo, but it is one of my favorite pastas.  I enjoy the shape and the size.; often times I use it with rice for a tasty pilaf.  Today’s recipe is for garlic parmesan shrimp.  I had thought I would have this with spaghetti or angel hair but I was fresh out hence the orzo.

Garlic Parmesan Shrimp

  • 12 o.z. large shrimp ~ peeled and deveined
  • 6 cloves garlic ~ minced
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan ~ plus extra for sprinkling on top
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup uncooked orzo ~ cooked according to package

Over medium high heat melt butter; add shrimp; season with garlic, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper ~ cook about 4-6 minutes or until cooked through.  Stir in parmesan and cooked and drained orzo (do not rinse).  Grate extra parmesan over top just before serving if desired.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
