Excellent and easy! I roast peppers in the summer and freeze them, so I always have some on hand--and that was GOOD. We sprinkled some feta on top. Thanks!

This was delicious even though I only had the medium shrimp in the house, and spent more time than I cared to shelling and deveining 1 lb of those....grrrr, not my favorite job anyway. But the orzo was really tasty, and the shrimp were great too. Would make this again, but next time...gonna take the time to run to the Seafood Market for the larger shrimp.

My hubby loved this because shrimp is his favorite food in the world. I subbed fresh vegie stock for the bouillon powder, used a combo of red and yellow peppers roasted, used fresh toms and fresh herbs. I added the bell peppers to the dish last minute. Don't care for bell peppers cooked for long periods of time. Good directions for giving your mate a peck on your cheek BEFORE eating the shrimp.

We had this for supper last night. It was fast, tasty and an attractive plate. I subbed Oil cured olives for Kalamata, and made a shrimp jus from the (discarded) shells and tomato juice. So, shoot me, I don't like waste (chicken bouillon powder either). BIG plus... this is a recipe for 2! Recipe writing was very engaging.

Well I must confess I made a couple of substitutions, which is something I don't like to do with contest recipes; however, I don't think they changed the taste, maybe the outcome. I was in the middle of everything and found I didn't have a yellow pepper so I had to use red. I know that the yellow would have added more color. Also, my shrimp were medium size ones, 31 to 40 count per pound. Finally, I subbed a husband for the boyfriend and we both enjoyed this dish. Hope you don’t the substitutions!
