Frozen peas, minced tarragon, and fresh lemon juice are tossed with orzo for a speedy side of Orzo with Tarragon and Peas .
3/4 cup uncooked orzo
1 tablespoon butter
2 1/2 cups frozen peas
1/4 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons minced tarragon leaves
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3/8 teaspoon salt
How to Make It
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.
Melt butter in skillet over medium heat; cook 1 minute or until lightly browned. Add peas; cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Stir in orzo, chicken broth, tarragon, lemon juice, pepper, and salt.
Does have potential: I sauteed chopped red bell pepper, green onion, and garlic before adding tri-color orzo, peas, and other ingredients. Also used fresh mint and just a dash of dried tarragon. It was okay--served with the delicious CL tilapia in lemon butter sauce and a small salad with apples & ginger dressing.
