This recipe for Herbed Orzo is not really a recipe at all. Well, it is a recipe, but it’s not. Just like orzo looks like rice, but isn’t. It’s pasta. But it works just like rice. Clear enough?
The main purpose for this recipe is to simply show how easy it is to take something very ordinary, plain orzo, and change it into a fresh, tasty side, Herbed Orzo.
Fresh herbs transform. A little butter and some fruity extra virgin olive oil lend a nice mouthfeel. It’s like making pesto but without the work. The flavors are so easy to work with; add a little parmesan cheese. It’s a new side. Add some pine nuts, different again. How about some fresh peas? or Spinach? Really, this recipe is just a concept. A blank canvass. Ready for your creative touch to your family’s taste.
So create away!
Cook the orzo according to the package directions. Drain well. Return to the pot and stir in the butter, oil, and herbs along with salt and pepper, to taste.
