Frying Pan

  • Once you've added the orzo to the water and it is cooking, place the frozen shrimp in the frying pan and cook on medium-high heat to thaw.
  • Once the ice is off, drain the water from the pan.
  • When the orzo is done, return the shrimp to the pan and add the diced tomatoes, mushrooms, and basil leaves. Stir and cook until the mushrooms start to soften.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and add garlic, capers, and Italian dressing. Cook until reduced.
  • Add the orzo and stir occassionally until heated throughout.
  • Salt and pepper to taste and serve on a plate. Top with parmesan cheese.


  • Substitute penne pasta for orzo.
  • Substitute cubed ham for the shrimp.
  • Add bell peppers and/or green onions if desired.
  • Tastefully Simple Seasoned Salt adds a nice touch too.
