This is so good and easy.

Another fabulous recipe that was on Pinterest.

I did change it to fit my taste.

1/4 cup olive oil

One large chopped onion

2 chopped shallots

4 big cloves chopped garlic

2 chopped carrots

1 diced jalapeno

1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper

1  15 ounce can diced tomatoes or four diced plum tomatoes with all the juice

8 cups chicken broth

1 cup whole faro

1 pound peeled and de-veined medium shrimp

6 to 8 cups of baby spinach

12 big basil leaves

Heat the oil an medium heat.

Add the onions, shallots , garlic, carrots , jalapeno, salt and pepper.

Cook until soft about 8 to 10 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and chicken broth and bring to a boil

Add the farro and cook for about 25 to 30 minutes.

The farro should be chewy not mushy

Add the shrimp and basil

Cook about another five minutes till the shrimp is cooked.

Add the spinach.

Serve with hot crusty bread

This is a two bowl meal for me.

The medium shrimp is great and cheaper. You want everything to fit on your spoon so the larger shrimp is too large.
