Greek Shrimp with Orzo

This is one of my favorite go to recipes during the week. The Mediterranean flavors are so yummy, and it is super easy to make. Did I mention that it is also low in fat? Perfect! This is a must try in your kitchen! I found this recipe on  the Weight Watchers Website.

Serves 6
16 oz uncooked orzo
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1 medium green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic cloves, minced
28oz can diced tomatoes
1 tsp dried oregano (I used fresh)
1 lb shrimp ( I used 15 shrimp)
1/4 cup basil, fresh, chopped
2 tbsp crumbled feta cheese

Cook orzo in salted water according to package directions without added fat; drain and set aside. 

Meanwhile, heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, pepper and garlic; cook until soft, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and oregano; bring to simmer. Add shrimp; cook until shrimp are bright pink and cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Spoon cooked orzo into shrimp mixture; stir to combine. Remove from heat and stir in basil. Spoon about 1 1/4 cups of orzo-shrimp mixture into a bowl and top with 1 tsp of feta.
