Orzo con Funghi, or Orzo with Mushrooms is another of my creations, though I am sure many others have made something similar. In any case, this is a tasty side dish. Enjoy.

1 cup Orzo pasta
2 tbs. salted butter
1/2 lb. portablella, or white button mushrooms, chopped
1/2 lb. Porcine (king bolete) mushrooms, chopped
2 tbs. black truffle oil
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 onion, chopped.

Fill a suitable saucepan with the chicken broth/stock. Add the orzo and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Heat the butter in a skillet adn add the mushrooms and a pinch of salt. Saute over medium heat until the mushrooms are very lightly browned. Add the chopped onion, cover, and cook for another minutes. When the pasta is done, pour the mushrooms, onions, and butter into the noodles. Dress with black pepper, and black truffle oil. Serve with roasted chicken, and dressing/stuffing, and sugar-snap peas.

the truffle oil is one of the best parts. I always keep some on hand. Love it in my mashed potatoes, I put a drop on anything if I think it needs an extra boost of something different.

It is/was extremely expensive but the price has come down by more than half lately. Guess people have found out that it is synthetic flavourings so can't justify. Read a few articles quite a while ago about not being able to tell the difference between real and artificial by much.

I'm happy with it.
