1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
2/3 pound orzo
2 teaspoons lemon zest
lemon juice, from 1/2 lemon
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

1/2 cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped
6 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
freshly ground pepper

1. Season the shrimp with the lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt to taste
2. Cook the orzo according to package directions in salted water.
3. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large non-stick skillet. Add the onions, garlic, crushed red pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook for an additional minute. Then add the tomatoes, olives, oregano, and parsley. Cook just until shrimp turn pink. Add the wine and remove from heat.
