Orzo with Chicken and Artichokes
Orzo with Artichokes, Balsamic vinegar and Chicken -- as easy as A-B-C! Pancetta, spinach, and toasted pine nuts also play tasty parts in this pasta dish! This is a great way to use up leftover roast chicken (or turkey) meat!
After eating at an 'Italian' chain restaurant and loving this side dish, I went home and tried to recreate it. This is the recipe I finally came up with.
Orzo Pasta Salad
Great tasting pasta salad that I tend to eat way too much of... Feel free to make day before or morning of. Great for parties, just keep covered in refrigerator.
Orzo with Mushrooms and Walnuts
This recipe makes quite a bit. Everyone I've prepared it for loves it. You can easily cut the recipe in half.
Orzo and Chicken Stuffed Peppers
This dish looks beautiful and tastes like you cooked all day. Any combination of green, yellow, and red peppers works well; I use all three for color. You can also use low-sodium chicken broth and Smart Balance® spread.
Roasted Vegetable Orzo
This is a recipe I made up with all of the wonderful summer vegetables in season. Serve it with chicken or all on its own!
Greek Lemon and Chicken Soup (Avgolemono)
A copycat recipe of my favorite Greek restaurant. Creamy (but dairy-free) chicken and lemon soup. Delicious on its own or served with a Greek salad and bread or pita.
Italian Wedding Soup I
Coming from Rhode Island, a very ethnic state, this soup was traditionally served at Italian weddings. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese.
Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup
Inspired by Panera Bread's version, this soup delivers on flavor. Tender chicken in a lemony broth with orzo pasta, carrots, onions, celery, and baby spinach. This has quickly become one of my family's very favorite soup recipes.
