5 Min


15 Min


1/2 box
orzo pasta, uncooked
14 1/2 oz
tomatoes, canned italian-style and diced
1 c
onion, small white, chopped
1 clove
garlic, minced
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1 tsp
oregano, dried
1/2 tsp
basil, dried
1/2 c
feta cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat the olive oil in a non-stick large skillet. Add the onion and saute for a few minutes.

Add the garlic and stir. Add the orzo pasta and stir for a few minutes until the onion is translucent.

Stir in the diced tomatoes and water, and let the orzo simmer for a couple of minutes. Add the oregano and basil and continue to simmer for about 10-15 minutes until the orzo is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. You might need to add a bit more water during cooking if the liquid is gone before the orzo is done.

Sprinkle the feta cheese on top of the orzo, let the cheese warm a minute or two, and serve.
