While the shrimp and the zucchini were grilling,  I quickly made the orzo.  After the main ingredients were cooked, I blended the shrimp, zucchini and the orzo together and finally stirred in a hearty sprinkling of the feta cheese.  The lovely feta cheese melted quickly into the warm orzo and made the dish extra creamy.
