Actually, orzo is just a pasta shape (rice shaped only larger). Barley is a grain.
  • a little sauteed garlic, evoo, a squeeze of lemon, s&P
  • fresh parsley, fresh chopped tomatoes and juice, s&p
  • fresh grated Parmesan or also added to the above mentioned
  • butter, garlic powder, s&p, dried parsley
  • lemon, feta cheese, fresh oregano, s&p
  • grilled veggies then chopped small, like the orzo, tossed with evoo, s&p
  • sauteed garlic, evoo, canned tomatoes, fresh basil (reduce) then toss with orzo

the list is endless...

You can still look at rice dishes for ingredients that you actually do like and you can also look at pasta salad recipes (hot or cold).

I most enjoy Orzo tossed with extra-virgin olive oil, minced fresh basil, & parmesan cheese, OR, simply drizzled & tossed with White Truffle Oil.

Either prep works great with plain grilled fish or chicken.

LOL - not a total lie as the word orzo is the Italian word for barley - but in this context it is most definitely pasta.

Breezy - I love those classic Italian flavors - you can't beat them!
