Sautee shrimp with S&P in 1T EVOO until just under cooked..... about 3-4 min. Remove from pan.

Return garlic to heat, add tomatoes, S&P, cook for 1-2 minutes. Add Scallions and oregano and chicken broth. Add lemon zest and lemon juice to taste, I use at least 2 lemons. Bring to simmer and add mixture to cooked orzo. Add butter and pasta water. MIX together. Add shrimp last. I mix in Feta at the table, each to their own taste.
