Fresh Recipe: Butter Shrimp & Orzo

Who doesn’t love anything with Butter?  This Butter Shrimp and Orzo hit the spot any day!  Today on Fresh Tip Tuesday I shared this super easy recipe that you can do in the Smart Multi Cooker from Tupperware in less than 15 minutes!  ((I know right! I barely had time to pour my wine!)) I really love my Multicooker and when you get yours, you will as well.

Orzo is amazing and although it looks like a grain, yes, it is pasta.  Great for you too as it is one of those great carbohydrates that is low in fat and has fiber, plus protein. Tupperware has even more recipes available  for you at or message me and I will send you my Fresh Picks custom for you!
