Lemon and Herb Orzo


Lemon Herb Orzo with my Mediterranean Chicken…awesome!

If you aren’t familiar with orzo it’s pasta shaped like rice only just slightly larger.  It’s great served warm as a side dish – plain or with a sauce or gravy. And it’s perfect served cold in pasta salads. Recently I served this

This is a great dish to try different fresh herbs. I think I’ll use chives out of the garden next time. ~ ML
