|I have a friend headed over for dinner tonight, and since we've both had it up to here with all this cold winter weather, I decided to make something light and springy. I caught this shrimp with orzo pasta recipe on TV a few months back and gave it a little whirl. All the fresh herbs and lemony pop give it a bright flavor that's perfectly reminiscent of spring. And since it's supposed to be served chilled or at room temperature, it's the perfect dish for company, as I was able to make it hours ahead of time and can now give all my attention to my guest, where it belongs! With a bottle of French pinot gris and maybe a store bought pear tart for dessert, we're all set! |
* French Charmed Note: Taste test for seasoning on your own rather than relying on the measurements in the recipe. We used slightly less salt and pepper, and it was perfect!
