Broccoli and carrot orzo

Orzo with chicken, broccoli and carrots

Date: August 2nd, 2011


Modifications: I probably used more cheese than called for, but I wasn’t measuring. We also added some chicken pieces. (Update: We almost never add chicken now, and usually double this recipe. We do throw in 1-2 cans of white beans for protein and it’s a GREAT addition and obviously way faster/cheaper than chicken. It also can be easily frozen and is great for a quick kid meal)

Time to table: 20 minutes with premade chicken

Servings: 3 adults, 1 toddler

Ben: Like

Erin: Like

Annie: Like

(Edited to add Luke: LOVE LOVE LOVE – he shovels this in – usually 2-3 bowls)

Notes: This meal was a great way to sneak in some veggies that Annie actually seemed to like, the copious amounts of cheese doesn’t hurt 🙂 As you make this dish, you don’t get too excited for it, but it is surprisingly flavorful and incredibly easy to make, a big win!
