Orzo/Risoni

 This dish has to be one of the easiest recipes in my repertoire. I could make it blind folded or “two sheets to the wind” or both. It only takes five minutes to prepare and ten minutes to cook. Weather you call it Orzo (Greek), or Risoni (Italian), depending on which camp you belong to, it’s a fun ingredient to use that you would swear was rice.
