My husband and I loved this! I planned on making the orzo to go with it, but didn't have enough left in the box so I made quinoa with the same additions, plus a bag of spinach wilted and stirred in. This would be a great meal for company!
Pork Cutlets with Orange Gremolata
Make sure to grate the rind before juicing the orange. For a quick side, combine 1 1/2 cups cooked orzo with 2 teaspoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 2 sliced green onions, and 2 ounces dried cranberries. You can sub chicken or a firm, white fish for the pork.
