ORZO WITH WILD MUSHROOMS

ORZO WITH WILD MUSHROOMS (for four)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 onion, chopped

8 ounces mixed wild mushrooms, sliced

2 cups canned low-salt chicken broth

1 cup orzo

3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted

2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley


  1. Heat oil in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and mushrooms and saute until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  1. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Stir in orzo and reduce heat to medium low.  Cover and simmer until orzo is tender and has absorbed all the liquid, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.  Remove from heat.
