Shrimp and Orzo Pilaf

    Timing seems off. Vegetables should be added before shrimp. I had to remove the shrimp to let the veggies cook. Orzo seemed very pasty after sitting while cooking the shrimp/veg. Sundried tomatoes seem out of place flavor wise and I think pine nuts would be better than almonds. Not sure I'll try it again but it could be improved easily.

    In contrast to other reviews, I loved this dish, and it comes together easily! Great contrast of tastes between crunchy almonds and crisp veggies versus the creamy orzo and tender shrimp. Best part was the sun-dried tomato sprinkles which infused every bite - almost like an invisible pasta sauce yum! Only thing I might do differently is replace the bell peppers with a different veggie, since bell peppers aren't my favorite.
