1In a pan, stir together the first 5 ingredients, cover pan and simmer mixture
for about 40 minutes or until orzo is tender and liquid is absorbed. Meanwhile,
in covered pan, cook together remaining ingredients until onions are soft.
Remove cover and cook for several minutes or until liquid is evaporated. Toss
together orzo and tomato mixture until blended. Heat through before serving.
Sprinkle with a little grated Parmesan before serving, if desired. Serves 4 to 6
Orzo is a nice variation to the more traditional rice. Everyone seems to enjoy
this rice shaped pasta, flavored with broth and tomatoes. The addition of peas
makes it especially attractive for buffet serving.
