Lemon Orzo Shrimp

Wow! All of the ingredients for this dish can easily be kept on hand. It's easy to throw together and  very tasty!

1 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
salt/pepper, to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
1 tsp dried oregano
8 oz orzo pasta
2 c chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 c frozen peas
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Season shrimp with salt and pepper, to taste; set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic, onion and oregano, and cook, stirring often, until onions have become translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in orzo until lightly browned, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in chicken broth and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked through, about 10-12 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, peas, lemon juice and shrimp. 

Move to a 9x11" baking dish, top with Parmesan and bake until shrimp are cooked through, about 12-14 minutes.
