    Manami's Note:

    Found this on foodnetwork.com and it is courtesy of Michele Urvater. We make rice and shrimp every few weeks, so I decided that perhaps we should use orzo and voila! ;)

      This is nice! It reminds me strongly of a Catalan (spain) dish called Fideua. I added lemon and parmesan at the end, and it really needed the lemon. A nice dish! Will make again. However, as a main dish it doesn't serve 4. We were two and it wast perfect. Unless I'm a HUGE pig? THen again, maybe I am!

      So good. I didn't have any saffron or scallions but oh man it was still good. I want to eat the portion I set aside for lunch tomorrow but I'm trying not to be greedy. So good.
