Shrimp and Orzo Skillet

The Menu:
Shrimp and Orzo Skillet

The Original Recipe:
I kind of just made this up on my own one day. It was delicious. Of course, I love shrimp and anything that is like Alfredo sauce with garlic. It was delicious.

Shrimp with Creamy Orzo and Feta Cheese
2 tbls. butter, divided
 8 oz. orzo
Chicken stock
2 or 3 garlic cloves, minced
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (some feta is salty, so you can use Asiago or Parm. cheese instead)
2 tablespoons Chopped fresh Basil
1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled
1/4 cup dry white wine
8 oz. heavy cream

Heat one tablespoon butter in pot, add orzo, toast until lightly toasted. Add chicken stock and simmer until orzo is done (follow directions on pkg. of orzo). Add Basil; stir.

 Meanwhile, sauté garlic, onion, and butter in pan, add shrimp and cook until almost pink about 3 minutes, add cream and wine, heat through about 2 minutes. Add cooked orzo, and feta, stir to combine.

Plate, add feta on top to serve.
