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. Blend will be in stores by early May 2016.
2 Tbsp Twisted Gourmet Yukon Wild Mushroom Blend (NEW!)
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)
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 Mushroom spice 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…
