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.
