Welcome to a brand new month AND my second brand new weekly segment: Monday Makings. Each Monday I’ll be posting my attempts at making something whether it be recipes, DIY projects, or a difference in someone’s day.
This past week I decided to make an orzo pasta dish. It was quick, easy, and inexpensive. I hadn’t been to the grocery store in a while and had hardly any food left in my fridge. So, when I was over at my parent’s house I took what mom had left of her orzo pasta to make the dish, and threw in what I had left in my freezer – frozen shrimp and peas.. 1) It saved me a trip to the store, and 2) It was free. (Thanks, Mom!)
Here’s what I did. I’m proud to say it got the BF stamp of approval, too.
1. Bring a large pot to boil and add 2 cups of orzo. Follow directions on container.
2. Heat up the frozen peas and shrimp in a large skillet.
3. Once the pasta finishes cooking, drain and serve with peas and shrimp. Throw some shredded cheese on top and you’re good to go!
I mean, how easy is that?! It took a total of 15 minutes and I even had leftovers.
