DIRECTIONS

  • In a skillet, fry bacon over medium heat until almost crisp; drain on paper towels.
  • Pour off all but about 1 tablespoon of fat; add in scallions and garlic; stir/saute until softened and set aside.
  • Crumble bacon.
  • Preheat oven to 350°; butter a 2 quart casserole and set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, bring the broth to a boil; add in the orzo; decrease heat to low; cover, and cook until all the liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  • Transfer the orzo to the casserole dish; add bacon, scallions and garlic, and ½ cup cheese; season to taste with salt and pepper and stir well.
  • Add the shrimp and peas and stir gently just to mix the shrimp and peas into the orzo.
  • Spread the sour cream evenly over the top; sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  • Bake about 25 minutes, until bubbly and golden.
