Shrimp and Fresh Herb Orzo

1. Saute leeks in 1 tbsp hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 3 minutes or until lightly golden. Add garlic, and cook 30 seconds; remove leeks and garlic.

2. Season shrimp with salt and pepper. Turn heat to high, and add remaining 1 tbsp oil to skillet. Add shrimp, and cook 1 minute; stir and cook, another minute. Add wine and herbes de Provence; cook 1 minute until shrimp are just pink and cooked through.

3. Stir in prepared orzo and fresh dill, leeks and garlic; cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Remove from heat; top with crumbled feta. Garnish, if desired. Makes 4 servings.

Note: Herbes de Provence is a blend of dried herbs used to season meat, poultry and vegetables that commonly includes basil, fennel seed, lavender, marjoram, rosemary, sage, summer savory and thyme. You may obviously substitute the above herbs separately (whatever you have on hand).
