We had these last night and I didn't get around to posting until this morning. This recipe is again from the Light Cooking for Two page 111:
5 ounces orzo, uncooked
1/2 pound unpeeled medium-size fresh shrimp
Olive oil-flavored vegetable cooking spray
1/4 teaspoon olive oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic
3/4 cup peeled, seeded, and chopped tomato
1 tablespoon dry white wine
1/2 cup shredded fresh basil
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
Dash of freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
Cook orzo according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain. Set aside, and keep warm.
Peel and devein shrimp; set aside.
Coat a small nonstick skillet with cooking spray; add oil. Place over medium-high heat until hot. Add garlic, and saute 30 seconds. Add tomato, and saute 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add shrimp and wine; saute 2 minutes. Add basil, oregano, and pepper; saute 2 minutes or until shrimp turns pink.
Combine shrimp mixture and orzo, stirring well. Spoon mixture evenly into 2 (2-cup) casseroles coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with feta cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 500° for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.

To start with, I could not find my individual corningware so I had to use soup bowls. No substitutions were made. We didn't even have to use a bunch of bowls and mess up the kitchen. I thought it was incredibly yummy but the hubby thought the feta was too strong of a cheese for this recipe. It's ironic since I'm the one who an't stand feta, lol. We both agreed that fresh parmesan or even Gruyere would have been better (milder). I will definitely make this again!
On a side note, tonight is our anniversary and the hubby is making beef wellington!! I'll post the recipe and review tonight :D.
