Directions

Fill a pot with cool water and heat. Put shrimp in a bowl and add garlic, capers, chile paste, a little olive oil, salt, and fresh ground pepper. Mix together and let the flavors meld.

Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water and cook, uncovered for about 8 minutes or until the orzo is tender. Drain the water off the cooked orzo.
