Yukon Wild Morel Blend Orzo

Do you love risotto? I do, but it tasked time to make. This is a wonderful alternative.. a quick and delicious side dish, so good you’ll want to eat it straight out of the pan.

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp Twisted Gourmet Yukon Wild Morel Blend 

2 Tbsp butter

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved (optional)

1 cup uncooked Orzo

2 cups chicken stock (plus approx. 1/4 cup as needed)

 

Method:

Over medium heat, melt butter in a medium deep sauce pan (2 inch deep fry pan)

Once butter is melted, add the Twisted Gourmet Yukon Wild Morel Blend seasoning and tomato halves; sauté for 2-3 minutes or until tomatoes are softened and everything smells delicious.

Add orzo, stir to blend butter and spices throughout the pasta. Stir in stock and simmer over medium/low heat. As orzo cooks, stir occasionally. Stock will be absorbed and evaporate; add a bit of stock if orzo begins to stick. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes or until pasta is cooked and most of the sauce has reduced.

Serve… try to share but make no promises…
