Welcome to one-pot week! I love any meal I can make in just one pot or pan, don’t you? It just makes cooking — and cleanup — so much simpler. Today I’ve got a one-skillet meal that’s a kind-of cheater paella, using quick-cooking orzo instead of rice. In addition to the orzo, you’ll need 6 cloves garlic, 3 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, chicken broth (preferably low-sodium), 1 pound shrimp, and fresh basil leaves. And make sure you have a large ovenproof skillet with a top.
Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
In the video, I’ll show you my favorite trick for cutting many tomatoes at once. You won’t believe how much time it saves in this recipe. I’ll also teach you about the “absorption method” of cooking (which you’ve probably already used without knowing it had a fancy name). Don’t forget to tune in!
