Refreshing!A great summer dish! I replaced the dried basil for parsley. And used fresh Basil (yummy)in place of the fresh parsley.This summer I`ll be making this with grilled shrimp! Thanks for an other great recipe.
It's not the summer but who cares! I made this this morning for later tonight. It is tempting me so I tried it. YUMMY! I had shrimp in the refirgerator that I need to use and I had all the ingredients for this (except the green pepper so I omitted it). I used diced canned tomatoes, drained which was a time saver. Thanks for a nice "cool" dinner even in the fall!*One of my sons wanted it hot so I pan fried it (there's enough oil) and orzo and onion were fantastic. The orzo crisped and the shrimp were just heated through. Yum!
