Healthy Shrimp Orzo Dinner

Wow oh wow! I just made the most delicious dinner tonight. Maybe it’s me channeling my inner wifey but I have to give myself major props on how good this turned out!

It’s east to cook the orzo and make a kid-friendly version too with just feta, orzo, and olive oil before I combine all the other ingredients. I also love that it’s a single dish meal. I’m always trying to stuff as much food into my mouth in very little time so when I don’t have to worry about cutting up my food to get that oh-so-perfect bite every time, that’s why I consider this Healthy Shrimp Orzo Dinner a win.
