- 1 lb(s) Shrimp (cooked)
- 1 lb(s) Orzo
- 1 Onion (diced)
- 1 Yellow Pepper (chopped)
- .5 lb(s) Green Beans (chopped)
- 2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
- 3.5 cup(s) Chicken Broth
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
- 2085 (fresh)
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic to the skillet and cook until the onions are soft.
Once onions are soft, add the orzo and cook for one minute. Then add chicken broth, yellow pepper, green beans and Old Bay seasoning. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cover the mixture. Let cook for about 20 minutes until the orzo has absorbed the broth.
Once the orzo is cooked, add the shrimp and continue to cook the mixture until the shrimp is warmed.
Serve the mixture with the basil as a garnish. Enjoy!
