I’ve Never Made Orzo.

But I love it!

Orzo (from Latin hordeum, sometimes called Italian rice) is Italian and means “barley” , from which orzo was originally made. However, in common usage in the United States, orzo is understood to mean rice-shaped pasta, slightly smaller than a pine nut. It is frequently used in soups and baked casseroles. Despite its rice shape, orzo is made not of rice but of hard wheat semolina.”

I got this Whole Wheat Orzo at Whole Foods a week or so ago and decided to pair it with veggies and fish. It was a fun change to our typical Brown Rice or Quinoa. I would definitely do it again.

This recipe is grilled Zucchini, Yellow Squash, Mushrooms, and Tomatoes. Toss in Orzo, olive oil, a little light Parmesan and light Feta. Salt and Pepper to taste. Top with Grilled fish of your choice.

Oh and I leave you with some adorable shots of Mr. Gaunt and our fave little guy Liam on Broncos Sunday!
