Garlic Orzo Tuscan Shrimp is coated in a light and creamy Parmesan cheese sauce filled with garlic, sun dried tomatoes, baby bella mushrooms, onion and spinach! This has really great flavor and the majority of it (other than cooking the orzo) is done in one pan.

PREP TIME  :  5 mins
COOK TIME : 15 mins
TOTAL TIME: 20 mins


·         1/2 cup orzo pasta, uncooked
·         1 tablespoon butter or margarine
·         3 teaspoons jarred minced garlic
·         1/2 pound shrimp (peeled, deveined, tails removed)
·         1/2 small yellow onion, diced

1.   Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the orzo per package instructions, about 8 or 9 minutes. Drain the orzo and set aside.
