Cook the orzo
Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add the orzo and cook until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain, reserving ⅓ cup [⅔ cup] pasta cooking water. While the water is heating and the orzo is cooking, start preparing the rest of the meal.
Prep the remaining ingredients
- Finely chop enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
- Rinse and drain the shrimp. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
Cook the tomato sauce and shrimp
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the onion and oregano and cook until the onion is translucent, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in 3 tablespoons [¼ cup] white wine (from your pantry) or water, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the spicy tomato sauce base and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until starting to thicken, 2 to 4 minutes.
Working in batches if needed, stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and reserved pasta cooking water and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are firm and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes for regular shrimp, 4 to 6 minutes for jumbo shrimp. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the orzo to individual bowls. Drizzle each serving with ½ teaspoon oil, add the feta, and toss to mix. Spoon the shrimp and tomato sauce on top and serve.
