8 Oz. whole-wheat orzo

1 Lb. peeled and deveined shrimp (21-25 per lb. size)

3 Cups of sugar snap peas cut in half (if the ends are tough or there are stringy spines, cut them off and remove the string)

¼ cup of finely chopped fresh dill (also have some small sprigs for garnish

1 small shallot minced

1. Bring a pot of salted water to boil. (Throw in a couple of Tbsp. of salt to season water). Add orzo and cook for 7 minutes.

NOTE:  This keeps great for several days and is a great healthy lunch or light dinner.  This recipe works well with almost any veggie, just blanch them first.  I have also used regular orzo and/or small pasta shapes like elbows and shells.  All taste great and make this a very versatile dish.  Use what you have!
