Pasta, Rice & Polenta

Orzo with Wine, Mushrooms and Parmesan

Jump to recipe

Orzo is a form of pasta that is cut roughly in the shape of large grains of rice, which may be why it is also called risoni (meaning “big rice”).  Like all pasta and rice, it lends itself easily to a wide range of flavors and is, for that reason, a versatile side dish to accompany almost any meat main dish.

I made this recipe up on the fly to accompany a braised lamb with herb au jus I made for the birthday dinner of a friend and it ended up being the star of the evening.
