Decadently Creamy Shrimp and Scallop Scampi With Orzo
40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
16 ingredients
6 servings
I found myself without a car today and had to come up with dinner from things in the freezer and pantry. A quick inventory was pointing me in the direction of scampi but I wanted something a bit different. This is still very garlicky and yet the creamy cheesy sauce makes it somewhat comforting and very decadent. Served it with some steamed broccoli and crusty bread.
