Broccoli Orzo

  • From skinnytaste:
  • 6 oz uncooked orzo pasta
  • 2 cups of fresh broccoli florets only 
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed and finely chopped
  • 1 T extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and fresh pepper to taste

Trim stems off broccoli, cut into small pieces and season with salt. Steam covered with a little water until cooked, careful not to overcook. When broccoli is cooked,remove from pan and chop into smaller pieces.

Meanwhile, cook pasta in medium pot of salted water as directed for al dente.Reserve about 1/2 cup liquid before draining. Drain orzo in a colander and add the oil to the pot. Saute garlic a few minutes until golden, add broccoli mix well. Add orzo and stir to combine all. Add a little reserved liquid as needed so pasta isn't dry. 

I made this pretty close to the original.  The link above takes you to the website where I found this recipe....and my version is listed above.  We didn't use any salt...and just a few grinds of pepper.  

Tasted great with the lemon chicken posted a few days ago!
