One-Pot Shrimp and Orzo
with Peas and Lemon
One-pot dinners to the rescue! Since everyone seems to love orzo, we thought: why not boil it with tomatoes, shrimp, and aromatics to soak up all the flavor? Sweet green peas are tossed in at the very end, but we have a feeling even the pickiest of eaters won’t be complaining about it.

Wash and dry all produce. Halve, peel, and finely chop onions. Mince garlic.
Cook aromatics: Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add onions and Italian seasoning, and toss until softened, 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.
Add orzo, diced tomatoes, stock concentrates, and 4 cups water to pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook until orzo is al dente, 10-12 minutes.
Zest lemon: While orzo simmers, zest and halve lemon.
When orzo is al dente, stir in shrimp and peas. Cook until shrimp are opaque and cooked through and peas are bright green, about 5 minutes.
Stir in 4 TBSP butter, and season with salt and pepper. Stir in lemon zest and a squeeze of lemon, to taste. Divide orzo between plates, top with Parmesan cheese, and enjoy!
