Step 1

Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil, add the pasta and broccoli and cook according to package directions for al dente. Reserve about 1/2 cup liquid before draining.

Step 2

Drain orzo and broccoli in a colander and add the oil to the pot over medium heat.

Step 3

Add the garlic and cook until golden, 30 seconds. Return the drained orzo and stir to combine all.

Step 4

Add 1/4 cup of the reserved liquid, or more as needed and cook 1 minute, stirring.

Step 5

Meanwhile, in a large skillet melt butter and oil over medium heat.  When the butter is melted, add garlic and sauté 30 seconds.

Step 6

Add shrimp and season with 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook 2 minutes, flip, then add another 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until shrimp are opaque and cooked through.

Step 7

Remove from heat and add red pepper (if using), lemon juice, and parsley.  Toss to evenly coat.

Step 8

To serve, divide the shrimp and sauce over 3/4 cup orzo.
