1Cook on high/medium heat all together the Italian sausage, chopping it well, onion, green pepper and zucchini in a large skillet. Cook until very well done, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes or a little more.
2Then add 3 cups beef broth, the stewed tomatoes, basil, parsley. Add 1/2 cup orzo pasta. Stir until well mixed.
3Cook uncovered on high until boiling then medium until orzo is well done, a minimum of 20 minutes or as desired. Stir occasionally.
Once I had to delay serving for one hour and it still turned out great. I double this recipe when serving more than 3 hearty eaters! It is a meal in itself.
