Lemon Orzotto

Orzotto is like risotto, but it uses orzo pasta instead of rice. Because of this, the dish is ready sooner, as orzo doesn't take very long to cook. I cooked this just like I would risotto--with onions, white wine, Parmesan, salt and pepper, and a little butter--though I subbed vegetable broth for my usual chicken. I added the liquid slowly at first, and then poured the rest in and put the lid on for about 8 min. This makes a nice side, or it could be a main dish with more vegetables or protein added in. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
