Orzo, the ricelike pasta, is lightly flavored with lemon, then stirred into cooked sweet onion, zucchini, and yellow squash for a colorful side dish that's quick and light.

Made this as a side dish tonight and it was very good. I did not have fresh basil so I used a little dry.

This soup is perfect as an introduction to a full Greek meal, or a hearty bowlful for a meal in itself. Serve with fresh pita triangles, and you'll be sure to please your guests!!

An orzo pasta salad with chicken, feta cheese, olives, and grape tomatoes is served in pretty red bell pepper cups and garnished with leaves of fresh oregano. It won a blue ribbon at the fair!

This is good hot or cold. I don't serve this in the pepper cup like it is suggested unless I'm trying to impress company.

I like this a lot. I usually use toasted slivered almonds instead of hazelnuts.

Tiny ovals of orzo pasta, toasted golden brown in butter, is cooked in bouillon with long-grain rice to make an easy and versatile side dish. Try tossing with chopped parsley and a grating of Parmesan cheese before serving.

This is another one I've tried. Very easy. It just takes plain ole rice up a level. There's something about sauteing it before cooking in water that makes it better.
