I return to this time and again, for easy, one-pot suppers which all the family really enjoy. You can make the base and add prawns and feta instead of meatballs and mozzarella or make different meatballs - chicken are good. Lots of variations.
Orzo is the little pasta in the shape of rice – easy to eat a lot of and widely available. You can simply dress a plateful of Orzo in butter and salt and a handful of parmesan for a quick meal and it is delicious. You can also use it as a substitute for rice or potatoes and it is often used in a sort of pasta risotto. Also it is a brilliant to use in one-pot dishes like the above.
