This Week's Healthy Recipe

And the cooking continues. This week I made lots of good things but this is my favorite. This is another weight watchers recipe.

Greek Shrimp with Orzo

12 oz uncooked orzo
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 c chopped onion
1 medium green pepper, chopped
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 tsp dried oregano
1 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 c fresh basil, chopped
2 tbsp crumbled feta

Cook orzo in salted water according to package directions without added fat; drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, pepper and garlic; cook until soft, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and oregano; bring to a simmer. Add shrimp; cook until shrimp are bright pink and cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Spoon cooked orzo into shrimp mixture; stir to combine. Remove from heat and stir in basil. Spoon about 1 1/4 cups of orzo-shrimp mixture into a bowl and top with 1 teaspoon of feta. 7 weight watchers points per serving.

Here's how it turned out-pretty and yummy!

I found this one to be easy and tasty. Shrimp are simple to cook and also very fast. This one made plenty of leftovers so Brian and I were able to enjoy it again later in the week.
