This recipe is just about as easy to make as that rice - a - roni stuff, but this is much healthier since it is made with real natural ingredients. Not to mention the stuff in the box is loaded with sodium. This is a great go to starch to serve alongside fish, chicken, or even some grilled veggie skewers!

This was quick, easy and good. I used spaghetti, broken into small pieces, as I did not have any orzo. I put the onions, rice and spaghetti into the pan and cooked until they turned light brown before adding the other ingredients. Doing this shortens the rice cooking time. Will make again.

I used parboiled rice and it cooked up fantastic. Very tasty.

Can this be done in an automatic rice cooker?

I thought the rice was good. But I suggest cooking the rice a bit before adding the orzo. Or just add more liquid. The rice wasn't done in 30 minutes and it had begun to stick.

Orzo is rice-shaped pasta.

what is ORZO?

White House Strawberries Romanoff

This classic dessert is so special, it's worthy of being on a White House menu. Come to think of was! This is one of the desserts that was served when former President Kennedy and his family hosted a luncheon for Princess Grace Kelly. The good news is, you don't have to be royalty to enjoy our White House Strawberries Romanoff!
