Sausage & Orzo

Serves 4

  • 1 keilbasa sausage (approx 13 ounces) cut in half lengthwise and then sliced 1/4″ thick
  • 1 cup orzo pasta (dry)
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen veggies of choice
  • 1 tsp ground thyme
  • 1 tsp basil
  • black pepper

In skillet, brown sausage in 1 Tbsp oil for a couple of minutes. Add dry orzo and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in broth and seasonings, cover and simmer until most (but not all) of the liquid is absorbed – about 8-10 minutes. Add veggies, cover and simmer for another 5 minutes or until hot throughout. Pepper to taste; should not need salt unless you used low-sodium broth.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
