Looking for a good Orzo recipe.

My husband had a meal from Pappa Razzi which was YUMMY. It had aspargus, chicken with a brown sauce. Any ideas? :?:

This is more of a side than a meal, but it is great.

Orzo with Parsley and Lemon Zest (TNT)

1/2 pound orzo
Coarse salt
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, eyeball it
2 large lemons, zested
Black pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley, a couple of handfuls



Cook orzo in salted water about 12 minutes, to al dente. Drain orzo well. Do not run under cold water. You want the cooked pasta to remain hot. Transfer pasta to a serving bowl. Drizzle orzo with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add lemon zest and parsley and toss to combine the flavors with the pasta.

Here's a fun twist on risotto -

RISOTTO OF ORZO

8-10 servings

1 lb. orzo
4 oz. diced pancetta (sub bacon)
1 can artichoke hearts,chopped
4T olive oil
1 medium onion diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1-2 cups chicken broth
5 oz. arugula, trimmed (sub baby spinach)
3 ½ oz. goat cheese
fresh grated parmesan
salt/pepper

Cook orzo in boiling water, approximately 5 minutes less than package instructions. While orzo is cooking, saute pancetta til lightly browned; drain fat and stir in artichokes; set aside. In a large pot, saute onion and garlic til soft. When pasta is done, drain and add to pot with onion mixture; over medium heat, slowly add the chicken stock a little at a time, stirring constantly and waiting until each addition is absorbed before adding more; continue cooking til pasta is fully cooked. Add pancetta mixture, goat cheese and arugula into pasta, stirring til cheese is melted and arugula is wilted; season with salt/pepper and parmesan.

Here's another--TNT
You could add some cooked, diced chicken to it if you wanted to make it a main dish.

Orzo Broccoli Pilaf

2 tsp olive oil
1 c sliced fresh mushrooms
½ c chopped onion
2/3 c orzo (rosamarina)
1-- 14 ½ oz can reduced-sodium chicken broth
½ c shredded carrot
1 tsp dried marjoram, crushed
1/8 tsp pepper
2 c small broccoli florets

In a large saucepan heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the mushrooms and onion in hot oil until onion is tender. Stir in the orzo. Cook and stir about 2 minutes more or until orzo is lightly browned. Remove from heat.

Carefully stir in the chicken broth, carrot, marjoram, and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 15 minutes or until orzo is tender but still firm. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in broccoli. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Makes six 2/3 c servings.

Here's a good one I made last week:

Lemon Zested Orzo Pilaf

1 lb orzo
1 T EVOO
3/4 c broth
3 T pesto
1 lemon, zested

Preheat oven to 400

Cook pasta.

Grease bottom of a casserole dish with the EVOO. Combine all of the ingredients in the dish.

Cover with foil and bake at 400 degrees about 30 minutes. Stir and serve.

;)
