Provided by Giada De Laurentiis

Categories     side-dish

Time 25m

Yield 6 to 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pound orzo (rice-shaped pasta)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large shallot, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, juices drained
1 1/4 cups whipping cream
1 cup frozen peas, thawed

Steps:

  • Bring a heavy large saucepan of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the orzo and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring often, about 8 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a heavy large frying pan over medium heat. Add the shallot and garlic, and saute until tender, about 2 minutes.

Season the orzo with salt and pepper, and serve.

CREAMY ITALIAN ORZO



Creamy Italian Orzo image

Orzo is a small Italian pasta that looks very much like rice. This dish is a fabulous blend of creaminess which gently balances the punch of the onion and garlic. Peas and cremini mushrooms are an added surprise in this dish that can be eaten as a side or a main course.

Time 25m

Yield 8 serving(s)

Creamy Orzo with Porcini image

This dish is prepared much the same way as risotto, but with pasta instead of rice. The mushroom soaking liquid serves as a rich, flavor-enhancing broth.

Provided by Martha Stewart

Categories     Food & Cooking     Ingredients     Pasta and Grains

Time 50m

Number Of Ingredients 7

1 ounce dried porcini mushrooms, rinsed in cold water
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 small onion, finely chopped
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 1/2 cups orzo
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Steps:

  • Place mushrooms in a medium bowl; add 2 cups warm water. Let soak until softened, about 30 minutes. Drain in a sieve lined with a paper towel or coffee filter, reserving liquid. Squeeze mushrooms to remove excess liquid; roughly chop.
  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 minutes. Season generously with salt and pepper. Add orzo; cook, stirring often, until orzo is golden brown and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  • Add porcini, reserved liquid, and 2 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring often, until orzo has absorbed most liquid and is creamy, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in Parmesan; season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle parsley on top.
