4 cloves garlic
4 tbsp. olive oil
Pinch crushed red pepper flakes
1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 pound large shrimp
Salt and pepper
1/2 pound orzo pasta
1 red onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2/3 cup kalamata olives, chopped
16 oz. grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
1 container crumbled feta
Bring a large pot of water to boil and boil orzo for 8 minutes. Place shrimp in a shallow baking dish with 2 tbsp. olive oil, red pepper, 2 cloves crushed garlic and oregano and season with salt and pepper. Let marinate for 10 minutes.
While orzo is cooking, heat a skillet with 2 tbsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Add red onion and bell pepper, season with salt and pepper and cook 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for another 5 minutes. Add 2 cloves chopped garlic and cook another minute. Add olives, parsley and tomatoes and simmer on low to keep warm.
*FYI, if you're trying to eat less carbs, this is still DELICIOUS without the orzo...just the vegetable mixture, feta and shrimp...yum!
