Thursday’s Side Dish: Orzo Here And There

Mix it up a bit with this pasta
Don’t underestimate Italian rice aka orzo pasta. Choose wholegrain or multigrain orzo pasta to make a healthier risotto that’s lighter on carbohydrates. We also suggest creating an easy-to-make side dish by simply melting butter or margarine into freshly cooked orzo. Be careful not to overcook. Sprinkle butter-flavored orzo with a pinch of garlic powder or add bacon bits for a yummy twist. Fluff orzo with a metal fork in order to prevent setting into clumps or a sticky mess. Meanwhile, add orzo to any stew recipe to make your stews heartier with every bowlful.
