This makes a great side dish with chicken or fish, the dried chili flakes are only optional I like to add in for a little heat you may omit if desired, use a good quality chicken broth for this, make certain to saute the orzo until just lightly browned it really improves the flavor of this dish! ;)
From a Church cookbook called Favorite Recipes by St. Mary's Ladies Guild (Carpatho-Russian Orthodox) in Endicott, NY. Submitted by Helen Macko. I want to make this soon since I have all the ingredients available.
There is a place in town that serves this pasta and I love it. I haven't made this recipe yet but I've been searching for one. i want to put it in my cookbook before I lose it. I found this recipe in The Sopranos Family Cookbook.
