I wish I could say I had time to spend hours in the kitchen whipping up delicious meals for my family. I don’t. But, what I do have is just about thirty minutes. That’s why I love creating recipes that are so easy and delicious like this One Pot Shrimp & Orzo.
One Pot Shrimp & Orzo
After days at work, after school activities and volunteering, the last thing I have time for is a major clean up in my kitchen. One pot meals make dinner a cinch! For this recipe, I am using a delicious Orzo from DaVinci®.
This time of the year quick, easy and delicious pasta recipes are in demand in my home! I love how pasta is so versatile, especially a delicious tasting pasta like DaVinci.

Ready for my family’s favorite one and done way to enjoy pasta? This One Pot Shrimp & Orzo Meal!
You’ll be shocked to see that you do not boil the orzo. One of the first steps is to lightly give it a toast. This really ups the flavor!
Of course, you could leave the shrimp tails on, but honestly I just don’t like it picking through my food. Plus, it’s an easier way to get the kids to eat seafood!
