Recipe Directions for Orzo Pasta with Baby Shrimp, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, and Sweet Pea Puree

  1. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook until they are browned. Be careful not to burn them.

  2. In a medium pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and stir until it turns opaque. Add the chicken broth and peas. Bring to a simmer for 15 minutes, then remove from heat. Place the mixture into blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

  3. In a large pot, bring 2 quarts of water to a boil. Add the orzo pasta and 1 tsp salt. Stir immediately to prevent the pasta from sticking. Cook until the pasta is done, about 10-12 minutes.

  4. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and stir quickly to cook. When the shrimp has turned opaque, add the sun-dried tomatoes and toss gently.

  5. Mix the pasta and pea puree. Serve the pasta with the shrimp mixture on top.
