Lemon Orzo With Pan-Seared Scallops

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Manami

I toasted the orzo in a 350ºF oven, for 10 minutes and then continued to cook according to manufacturer's suggestions. This is a combination of a couple of recipes and I hope you like them, at least try them, puleeze. ;)

This was great, and very simple. Adding a few veggies (brocolli as one other reviewer suggeted) makes this a complete meal. It does look like steps 5 and 6 are switched.
