Greek Shrimp with Orzo

10 oz uncooked orzo
Olive oil
3/4 c. red or yellow onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
28 oz. canned diced tomatoes
1 t. oregano
3/4 lb. shrimp, tails off and deveined
1/4 c. fresh basil, chopped
Crumbled feta cheese

Cook orzo in salted boiling water according to directions.  Drain and set aside.  While pasta is cooking, saute onion, green pepper and garlic in olive oil in a large frying pan.  Cook until soft, about 3 minutes.  Add tomatoes and oregano; bring to a simmer.  Add shrimp.  Cook about 5 minutes until they turn pink.  Spoon cooked orzo in pan and combine.  Remove from heat, add basil.  To serve, spoon serving of pasta and shrimp mixture into a bowl and top with feta cheese.

I borrowed this recipe from Weight Watchers, and it's 7 points.  Delish!  I served it with garlic bread and salad.

Today was a good day on the farm.  Little Red, one of the chickens, laid an egg, so that's two in a row for her.  Emil worked on the lawnmower and diagnosed a carburetor problem.  I started a fire and burned our paper/cardboard and pulled weeds. 

BIG NEWS:  My Uncle Ron and Grandma are coming to visit!  We are looking forward to exploring Redmond and Bend with them.
