ROASTED SHRIMP & ORZO

February 12, 2012

There are three strengths to this meal:
1. Delicious served hot or cold
2. FAST
3. Makes enough for a big group, or like, all of your lunches for a week

And it’s a pretty proud accomplishment for me because since I made it a year ago, both of my roomies have requested the recipe. They’re excellent cooks, so this is a big deal.
