Not soup. And not cold cereal either. These meals are just as flavor-packed and nutrient-filled as any other meal, but they're served in a bowl. Which, in our opinion, makes them way cooler. Get in on the trend of burrito bowls, smoothie bowls, noodle bowls, all the bowls!


1 - pound fresh or frozen large shrimp
1/2 - pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2 1/2-inch pieces
1 - cup dried orzo
2 - tablespoons olive oil
1/4 - cup thin red onion wedges
2 - cloves garlic, minced
2 - tablespoons white wine vinegar
3/4 - teaspoon salt
1/2 - teaspoon dried dill weed
1/4 - teaspoon black pepper
1/2 - cup oil-packed dried tomatoes, drained and coarsely chopped
1/2 - cup frozen baby sweet peas
Snipped fresh dill weed (optional)

Thaw shrimp, if frozen. In a large saucepan, bring 8 cups water to boiling. Add asparagus; cook about 2 minutes or until tender but still firm. Using a slotted spoon, transfer asparagus to a bowl of ice water. Return water in saucepan to boiling. Add orzo; cook, uncovered, for 9 to 11 minutes or until just tender. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water.
Meanwhile, peel, devein, and rinse shrimp, leaving tails on if desired. In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Add shrimp, onion, and garlic; cook and stir 3 minutes or until shrimp are opaque.
Stir in vinegar, salt, dill weed, and pepper. Add tomatoes, peas, orzo, reserved pasta water, and the asparagus. Cook and gently stir until heated through. If desired, top with snipped fresh dill.
From the Test Kitchen

The orzo mixture can be cooled, chilled, and eaten cold.
