Mushroom Orzo

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy

We eat a lot of mushrooms in this house, with venison steaks, roasted or in this fabulous Mushroom Orzo inspired by Cooking Light. It can be a side or an entrée and was really good as leftovers.


Orzo is one of those things that I forget about, since it is in such a small box it gets lost in the pantry but I must do a better job of searching for it. Good hot or cold and it make such  great sides and salads. Reminding myself to make more orzo!
