This orzo is a cinch to make and most importantly, it is a hit with everyone….and I mean even those in your family who just don’t do zucchini!
Let the savory adventure begin!
Start with a large sauté pan over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons olive oil. To the oil add 1 finely chopped yellow onion, 2 cloves minced garlic and 2 large zucchini, grated finely and squeezed to drain excess liquid. Sauté until onion becomes translucent and zucchini is cooked, about 4-8 minutes.
While cooking add 1 teaspoon fresh chopped thyme leaves,
1 teaspoon fresh chopped oregano leaves,
and a generous pinch of kosher salt.
Cook 1/2 of a package of orzo pasta according to directions, to al dente. Drain. Cool in bowl. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
To the orzo, add the cooked zucchini mixture.
Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese. Stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Bon Appétit, Ma Chérie!
