Number of Servings: 6


    4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth or water
    1 1/2 cups orzo
    2 cups chopped mushrooms
    3/4 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
    1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
    3/4 cup red wine vinaigrette (see recipie)


Saute mushrooms and onion until soft, about 3 minutes. Set aside. Saute shrimp until opaque, about 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring the broth to a boil in a large, heavy saucepan over high heat. Stir in the orzo. Cover partially and cook, stirring frequently, until the orzo is tender but still firm to the bite, about 7 minutes. Drain the orzo through a strainer. Transfer the orzo to a large, wide bowl and toss until the orzo cools slightly.

Toss the orzo with the mushrooms, onion, shrimp, basil, mint and enough vinaigrette to coat. You may not need all 3/4 cup. Can be served warm or at room temperature.
