My sister hates when people use the word 'literally' when they should actually say 'figuratively'. (Example- she hates it when people say "I literally died when I saw what she was wearing.")
But with this recipe, I think she'll agree that it's literally 5 ingredients. Chad and I were looking for affordable, easy meals with few ingredients last winter when we stumbled on this jewel at Good Housekeeping.
Here are the 5 ingredients needed to make Orzo with Shrimp and Feta:
1 1/2 cup(s) orzo
1 tablespoon(s) margarine or butter
1 1/4 pound(s) medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
3 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped
4 ounce(s) (3/4 cup) garlic-and-herb flavored feta cheese, crumbled
01. Add shrimp, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper to a medium non-stick skillet. Add tomatoes and cook 30 seconds, stirring. Remove skillet from heat.
02. When orzo is cooked, drain the pot and add the crumbled feta cheese.
03. Add shrimp mixture into orzo and cheese; mix ingredients together.
04. Enjoy while sipping a glass of white wine and watching your favorite television show. We chose "The Biggest Loser" because you can't watch that show without eating, am I right?!
Bonus: If this is a dinner for two, I guarantee that you'll have lunch for the next day.
