Green Winter Orzo

Posted Dec 17 2010 8:30am

Orzo is my new favorite pasta. It’s a lot like risotto (taste- and texture-wise), but much easier to cook– just boil water, set it, forget it, drain, done. Love it.

This evening’s recipe was inspired by Jody Adam’s Summer Green Risotto .

Jody Adams is a James Beard award-winning chef/owner at Rialto in Harvard Square. From what I hear, her recipes at Rialto are pretty awesome. It’s still on my list of restaurants to visit, so I need to make it happen!

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 diced celery stalks
  • 1 cup Orzo pasta
  • 2-3 cups chicken broth
  • 2-3 large handfuls of baby spinach
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 ounces sliced prosciutto
  • Salt & pepper

Stir in spinach and peas; cook. Over next 10 minutes, gradually add more chicken broth (if needed) until orzo is creamy and tender. Stir in Parmesan cheese and sliced prosciutto.

I added my serving of Green Winter Orzo to a bed of baby spinach.

Mal and I are spending the rest of the evening doing little home improvement projects around the house. The fun never ends around here!
