Asparagus is so fresh and tender in the spring, I just love to find an excuse to cook with it. This Greek inspired dish is just the ticket. For a video demonstration of this recipe as well as many other dishes, "like" me on Facebook:

Ingredients

    1/2 cup orzo, uncooked
    1/2 medium onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    14.5 ounces asparagus (before trimming)
    1/2 cup dry white wine
    2 plum/roma tomatoes, diced
    6 oz. medium, raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
    1 1/2 tbsp chopped fresh oregano
    2 oz. reduced fat feta cheese

Directions

Cook the orzo in salted, boiling water until al dente. Drain and rinse in cold water then set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Saute the onion and garlic until the onions are transparent. Trim the asparagus spears and cut into thirds then add them to the pan. Stir and coat well with the oil. Add the white wine and deglaze the pan. Let the asparagus blanch in the wine for 2-3 minutes then remove from heat and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 375.

In a mixing bowl, combine the tomatoes, shrimp, oregano, feta, salt and pepper. Add the orzo and the asparagus mixture. Stir well and transfer to a baking dish. Cover and bake for 10 minutes then remove cover and bake for 10 more minutes until the shrimp are cooked through.
