My family loves orzo and so do I. It is cheap, versatile and can be prepared so many different ways. When I was preparing to have Melissa d’Arabian on Around the Kitchen Sink Radio, I ordered a copy of her new cookbook 10 Dollar Dinners and cooked my way through from cover to cover. One highlight was this Orzo with Thyme and Lemon Zest or what she liked to call ‘Risotto for busy people’. It was a light and fresh accompaniment to salmon, fish and grilled meats. I can’t wait to make this during the warm months with a side of grilled veggies!
