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

How to Make Tomato Orzo with Feta Cheese


  1. 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.
