A watercress and endive salad with mustard vinaigrette makes a delicious starter to this rich main course. Serve the stew with crusty rolls. A distinctive white wine such as Sauvignon blanc pairs nicely.

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Puree first 6 ingredients in food processor, stopping once to scrape down sides of bowl. Mix shrimp and 2 tablespoons puree in large bowl. Mix tomatoes, tomato paste and all but 2 tablespoons remaining puree in another large bowl.


Bring broth, water and 1 tablespoon reserved puree to simmer in very large ovenproof saute pan over medium-high heat. Mix in orzo. Cook uncovered until orzo is just tender, but still firm to bite and most liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally, about 13 minutes. Mix cream into orzo; bring to simmer. Spoon tomatoes evenly atop orzo. Top with shrimp and cheese. Transfer skillet to oven and bake until shrimp are opaque in center, about 13 minutes. Brush shrimp with remaining 1 tablespoon puree. Sprinkle with freshly cracked pepper and serve.
