Roasted Shrimp and Orzo

I tried this recipe (Barefoot Contessa at Home) for the first time several years ago, and it has become a favorite standby, especially in the spring and summer.  I’m sure it will make even more appearances at our table now that wild shrimp are easier to find (thanks, Trader Joe’s!).  I love that it’s easy, and that I can make it in advance.  It’s pictured here without the addition of the fresh herbs, feta and scallions, because we brought it to share at a party, and I didn’t know how our friends felt about the herbs in question.  The dill, especially, can get to be overwhelming if you’re not crazy about it.  So, they traveled separately, but I still made everything far enough in advance that the dressing had time to really combine with the orzo, shrimp, and cucumber.
