Simple Side Dish...Onion Orzo with Mushrooms

I needed a starch side dish for dinner last night, and was out of rice and potatoes. I threw this together and it turned out great, and really tasty, so thought I'd share.....

In a med. size saucepan...
Saute' fresh mushrooms in butter. (canned mushrooms would work)
1 cup of Orzo pasta
2 cups water
1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup mix

Bring to a boil, cover and take heat down to lowest setting. Cook for 15 min. Remove cover, and fluff with a fork. Return lid for 5 minutes.

I was shocked at how good it was, with a wonderful "mouth feel" and flavor. Husband said this is a keeper.

That sounds good too Kades. It was really good with the dry onion soup mix, and I'm wondering how it would be with other dry soup mixes, like Lipton chicken noodle, or Knorr vegetable soup mix.

Onion soup mix is one of my favorite semi-homemade items and is a staple in my kitchen.

I really like this recipe you posted. I've put orzo on the grocery list (for next month).

Is Onion Orzo with Mushrooms going to be the name? How about OOM? Or something cuter?

I did this with Knorr vegetable soup mix last night. While it was pretty with the vegetable in it, I didn't like the flavor, so I'm sticking with the onion soup mix. Just thought I'd pass on the update.

This looks really good ... we love orzo. This would be great with either meatloaf or roast chicken.
