I am trying to find the pasta shrimp or prawn recipe that aired on tv fri or sat 01/29 or 1/28. It was a cold pasta (orzo I believe) and the prawns were baked. I was wanting to make it for a party this weekend and I am not locating it in your recipes. Can you help? Love you by the way!!

This salad is GREAT! A great combination of vegetables with the orzo and a nice 'light'/flavorful dressing! I made this for a chinese dinner party at my house, and now EVERYONE is asking for the recipe!! Thanks Paula, you rock!! (PS - I love using your recipes, the ingredients are usually available in my small town in ND!!)

I have made this recipe 2 times over the past few weeks. I diced the chicken meat from a store bought rotisserie chicken and substituted edamame for the snap peas. This recipe is great cold as well. My guest all loved it and it is low fat.
