Orzo Primavera

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Gwen35

Wonderful, colorful, tasty, quick and very easy to make. Yields 8 1/2 cup servings, but I sometimes add cooked shrimp (heated through), turning this dish into a main meal for two or three.

This was a lifesaver! A long work day with no time to shop and friends coming for dinner. (I need to plan better.) I found broccoli in the freezer and did a Zaar search and found Gwen35's recipe. It turned out to be a quick and tasty side dish to a chicken francese that I was serving that evening. Thanks Gwen35!!
