#SundaySupper Land O Lakes ® #SauteExpress Weekday Meals that Sizzle...Featuring Tomato-Basil Shrimp with Orzo and Feta

This week, #SundaySupper is spotlighting Weekday Meals that Sizzle using a fantastic new product from Land O Lakes ®: Sauté Express® Sauté Starter. This product is a lifesaver for busy cooks! After a long day in the office, the last thing I want to do when I get home is cook a complicated meal with a gazillion ingredients. Thanks to Sauté Express® Sauté Starter, I don’t have to sacrifice flavor to save a little time! Each cube contains everything you need to flavor your favorite chicken, fish, shrimp, or pork: butter, olive oil, and a variety of flavorful herbs and spices. This product saves a TON of time while preparing dinner…and it tastes FABULOUS! Sauté Express® Sauté Starter is available in four flavors: Garlic & Herb, Italian Herb, Savory Butter & Olive Oil, and Lemon Pepper.

All of the flavors sounded amazing, but I opted to use Garlic & Herb to create an original recipe to share with you today. When I’m trying to get in and out of the kitchen quickly, shrimp is my go-to ingredient. It cooks in a snap, and it tastes great. The recipe I’m sharing today is Tomato-Basil Shrimp with Orzo and Feta. While you cook up some orzo pasta, you have a pocket of time to sauté shrimp in the flavorful Sauté Express® Sauté Starter Garlic & Herb. After the shrimp are sautéed, tomato and basil are added. Then, everything is tossed with the orzo and bite-size cubes of tangy-salty feta. In less than 30 minutes, you’ve got a meal that looks and tastes like you’ve spent way more time in the kitchen…but that can be our little secret!

Tomato-Basil Shrimp with Orzo and Feta
a Weekend Gourmet Original

Step 1: Add 3 cubes of Garlic & Herb Land O Lakes ® Sauté Express® Sauté Starter to a non-stick pan with high sides. Cook over medium heat until it begins to bubble and sizzle. Then, add 1 pound large shrimp and sauté until they are cooked through and pink, about 4-5 minutes. Lower heat to med-low and add 2 diced and seeded Roma tomato and 4-5 basil leaves cut in a chiffonade -- stack the leaves, roll tightly, and then cut across with a sharp knife for instant basil confetti. Give it a quick toss to combine.


Step 2: Add 4-5 cups cooked orzo pasta (about 8 ounces uncooked) and ½ cup cubed feta cheese. Toss to evenly combine the orzo and feta with the shrimp and sauce. Place the pasta into a pretty serving bowl, and get ready for the compliments you’re about to receive!



That’s IT, folks! All this dish requires is a few minutes in the kitchen with some quick-cook ingredients…and Sauté Express® Sauté Starter. My kitchen smelled amazing, and the dish came out perfectly seasoned in less then 30 minutes. To save time, I purchased peeled shrimp. The most time-consuming part of this recipe was dicing the tomatoes, and that took all of 5 minutes. The garlic flavor was fabulous, but not overwhelming…and it complimented the tomatoes, basil, and feta perfectly. I didn't have to add any additional seasonings to this dish, because it was perfectly flavored! I can see myself using Sauté Express® Sauté Starter in my kitchen all the time: it tastes fantastic, and it saved me a ton of time in my dinner prep. That, my friends, is what you call a win-win scenario!!

    1. It's a nice combo...I wanted to use an herbed feta, but couldn't find it at the first two stores I went to. So...I improvised and went with cubed plain feta.

  10. My husband would love this dish, I will have to put it on the menu.

  11. Mmmmm! The Garlic & Herb sounds like it would make several dishes quicker & easier. We don't eat meat (including seafood) so I would use it with tofu in several dishes that I make regularly. We love garlic around here, so this would come in VERY handy!

    1. You could easily convert this recipe to veg by adding in some zucchini chunks in place of the shrimp...or maybe some chickpeas!

      Delete
    2. Oooo! Good idea. We love zucchini & chickpeas...I bet zucchini & tofu would really taste great with the Saute Express. Sigh...now I'm hungry! LOL

    1. You could also sub in pieces of diced chicken tender in place of the shrimp...I'm sure it would be great!

  18. I would love to try the Garlic and Herb. I would speed up my Chicken Scampi because I would be adding the butter and herb flavoring at the same time!
