This Shrimp and Orzo Pasta dish is tasty and quick to prepare.

Onions, garlic, mushrooms and tomatoes are sautéed then combined with wine, bell peppers and shrimp.

There is not a lot of sauce but enough to lightly coat the pasta.

Orzo is rice-shaped pasta, but it’s larger than long-grain rice.

It’s a nice change from spaghetti and easier to put on a fork.

This dish can be topped off with a generous sprinkle of feta cheese; however, I forgot to add the cheese before taking the photograph. Corinne Cook is a columnist for The Advocate. Reach her at
