Italian Orzo Skillet
This was super easy to make and gave me the opportunity to use up some veggies that were on their way out....
1 Tray Italian Sausage (I used Turkey)
2 Cans Diced tomatoes (undrained)
1/2 box Orzo pasta
2 Green Peppers (largely diced)
1 Eggplant (largely diced)
3 Bullion cubes (beef or chicken)
1 Scallion (Minced)
1 tbsp Garlic (Minced)
2 tbsp Italian Seasoning
Take the diced green pepper and eggplant and sautee in about 2 tbsp olive oil until cooked, but not completely through.
Add the garlic and scallion and on high heat sautee quickly.
Put into another bowl until later.
Get simmering and then add the orzo. Allow to simmer for about 2-3 mins and then add the veggies and the precooked sausage (cut into chunks).
Cook until everything is done and the water is absorbed well.
Top with Parmesan cheese.
