A creamy parmesan orzo pasta with shrimp, corn, zucchini, bacon and basil.
Simple ingredients that come together with flavorful results. Salty, savory, succulent and so comforting.
Creamed corn was my inspiration. The old-fashioned favorite that you seem to either love or hate. I’m in the group that loves it. As long as it’s homemade.
Sometimes I do tricky things with vegetables so people won’t turn up their noses when I place dinner on the table. In this case I shredded the zucchini so it mimics the shape of orzo. The green pieces kind of look like herbs.
No one so much as muttered the word zucchini. I’m sure the crispy, crumbled bacon was a distraction.
