Deelicious! I accidentally overcooked my orzo a little bit -- not used to this pasta, but it's now my new favorite. I should have cooked it for only 8 minutes, but usually I cook pasta a minute or two past the recommendation on the package. The shrimp were perfectly done. It's so good. Thanks! I am adding this to my cookbook.
