Fabulous! I didn't have any feta, so I used parmesan cheese instead. I also added garlic, because I am crazy about it. The dish was awesome. Light tasting, yet filling. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.

*ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS* I prepared as written with 1 exception, I also used a foil covered backing dish and it came out perfect. I did add some chopped Kalamata olives and next time I will add more Orzo. Thanks for posting such a fabulous recipe *Made for SSaSSy's ZWT 6*

My clipping of this recipe torn from March 2000 Cooking Light is a favorite I pull out year after year. I make it exactly as written; my DH and mother say this is their favorite shrimp dish. I have had difficulty finding the foil oven bags lately, so I just make my own with foil. My kitchen foil is much lighter weight so I have to carefully create the "bag" on a cookie sheet and handle it gently so as not to puncture it.

We really, really liked this!!! It was so fresh and light tasting. we used 1C white rice, only because we weren't able to find the orzo pasta at our store. It was wonderful with the rice, and we followed the rest of the directions exactly. We also made it on the stovetop...cooking the rice first, and adding the rest of the ingredients about 8 minutes before the rice was done. We will definitely make this one again!

What a great recipe! Following the advice of other reviewers, I doubled the orzo, and cooked this in a covered glass baking dish. I also added some green beans, cut into bite-size pieces, because they needed to be used. We loved this! Bursting with flavour and marvellous consistency, it made me wonder why I don't cook with orzo more often, a very tasty change from the usual pasta or rice! Very easy to do, and just delicious. I had a Little leftover, and ate it myself while cleaning the kitchen, sorry, I just felt, its so good, and I'm worth this, ha ha!!!!

This was a very simple, tasty dish. It was easy to make after work because there is not much prep work.

Wonderful! Easy to prepare and so delicious. Halved the recipe for two of us (but kept the original amount of orzo) and there was plenty. I was a little short on the feta, so topped it up with goat cheese...and it worked nicely. Nuked some diced onion to add as I was without scallions (thought I had them) and that worked too. Cooked it in a well sealed casserole, and it turned out just great. Amazing flavours! We will be enjoying this again & again & again......

This could not have been easier or more relish! Due to poor planning, I subbed yellow onion for scallions and had to use both feta & blue cheese and it was still outstanding. I used canned tomatoes with juice, not sure if fresh tomato was the idea or not It worked perfectly. I also made it in a covered casserole (with foil & lid). Timing is spot on for large shrimp.. Thanks a bunch for sharing this gem!
