“Simple dish, easily and quickly prepared, that can be served on its own for a complete meal. Orzo pasta resembles a short grain white rice, but takes less time to cook.” - by Kathy Miller
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- In a 4 quart saucepan, combine water and pasta. Cook over medium high heat until mixture comes to a full boil, 4 to 6 minutes. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
