    This was absolutely delicious and so easy to make! The ratios did seem slightly off though. It seemed as if there were way more shrimp than orzo but I didn’t weigh my fiancé’s two servings so that might have been the issue 🙂

    Can I purchase already cooked for orzo from the deli and stir in accordingly to directions? To mix it and warm it up?
