Shrimp with Feta and Orzo

I have featured this before but it is so good I must again.

It was a Cooking Light recipe but I added the oregano. I have too much oregano on hand not to add it. The addition made it even better in my opinion.

    Oh my, that looks good! I can see why it’s a repeat.
    I’ve been using a lot of oregano, lately, too. It’s so good this time of year when it’s just getting started. Besides, I don’t have any basil yet…

    Hey katie it is sooo good.

    I did have a small amount of basil I wintered in my sunroom.

    The plants don’t look too good and the stems have gotten woody. The leaves were usable.

    I am so excited to start the new veggie season.
