DIRECTIONS

  • Heat garlic and olive oil in a medium saucepan.
  • When garlic "speaks", add the onion and saute until translucent.
  • Add the mushrooms, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Cook mushrooms until brown and all the liquid has evaporated.
  • In the mean time, toast orzo in a separate pan over medium heat, until light golden.
  • When mushrooms are cooked, add sage, thyme, and chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  • Add orzo, reduce heat to med-low.
  • Cook until broth is absorbed (about 15 minutes) and orzo is al dente, stirring occasionally.
  • Add pine nuts, parmesan cheese, and parsley. Heat through until parmesan is melted and absorbed into the orzo.
  • Season to taste with additional salt and pepper, if necessary.
  • Serve immediately, with additional parmesan cheese, if desired.
