    packeyes's Note:

    A recipe I found on Better Homes and Garden. Very good leftovers. Use the flavors you enjoy for spicing up the veggies, I prefer a spicier taste so I used cumin and cayenne. I have listed recommendations - if you find a spice that works well that's not listed, please let me know so I can add it to the list!

    Serves: 4


    vegetab ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into small cubes
    • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
    • 8 ounces mushrooms, halved
    • 1 large onion, cut into wedges
    • 1 tablespoon rosemary, fresh and chopped
    • spices, assorted (such as cayenne pepper, cumin, oregano, basil, parsley, whatever flavors you like)
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 28 ounces chicken broth
    • 8 ounces whole wheat orzo (1 1/3 cups)
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped and toasted
    • 1/4 cup crumbled feta (optional)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 425°F Coat a large baking pan with cooking spray. Place squash pieces inside. Season lightly. Cover and bake for 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Take squash out of the oven and add mushrooms, onion, rosemary, oil and assorted spices. Toss together. Roast in oven, uncovered for 15 - 20 minutes, until vegetables are tender and lightly browned, stirring once or twice.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, bring broth to a boil. Cover and keep simmering. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add orzo and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes until orzo is lightly browned, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
    4. 4
      Add 1/2 cup of the broth to the orzo. Return to heat and stir frequently until broth is absorbed. Continue adding broth to the orzo, 1/2 cup at a time, with orzo absorbing the broth before adding more. Cook and stir until orzo is tender and creamy, about 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add vegetables and walnuts to orzo and gently stir together. Sprinkle each serving with feta cheese.
