Adapted from a recipe on the box a tube of Amore Pesto Paste came in. Quite good, I think. Preparation time doesn't include 2 hours marinating time. Instructions are for broiling but shrimp can also be grilled. PLEASE NOTE: In ingredients list, the 4th item should be "pesto paste", but the Recipezaar program turns it into "pesto sauce, paste."

  1. Combine first 8 ingredients (oil through pepper). Add shrimp, turning to coat and marinate, covered, in fridge at least 2 hours.
  2. Cook orzo until al dente (10-12 minutes).
  3. Meanwhile, preheat broiler.

  6. Serve shrimp over orzo and pour pan juices over top. Scatter cheese and parsley over the shrimp.
