  • Bring chicken broth to a boil in a pot; stir in orzo. Cook until almost tender, about 7 minutes. Pour orzo and broth into a bowl.

  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and mushrooms in the melted butter until softened, about 7 minutes. Pour in Marsala wine and simmer until liquid is reduced by half, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir mushroom mixture into orzo.

  • Stir peas, cream, fontina cheese, mozzarella cheese, salt, and pepper into orzo-mushroom mixture. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.

  • Mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and thyme together in a bowl; sprinkle over orzo-mushroom mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and breadcrumbs are lightly browned, about 25 minutes.

This was excellent! The only thing I did not care for was the thyme. I will use parsley next time instead or just leave it out altogether. I had a blend of peas and carrots in the freezer and so that is what I used. Carrots work nicely in this as well. This would pair nicely with many things and is a definite keeper! Read More
