"RICE" PILAF WITH MUSHROOMS
This is a conbination of my favorite parts fo several ZoneFast recipes. It's an easy and tasty dish that takes only about 10-15 minutes to get ready, and most of that is preheating and cooking time.
1 small container sliced portabello mushrooms
1 package Zone Orzo
Herbs and spices of your choice (I keep it simple with parsley, onion powder, garlic powder and chives)
S&P to taste
1 to 1 ½ teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1. Rinse mushrooms to clean, and spread them on a baking sheet. Place in a preheated 425 oven for 8 to 10 minutes to roast. (A tip: use parchment paper on the baking sheet for easy cleanup.)
2. While mushrooms are roasting cook the orzo al dente according to Zone pasta cooking instructions, and drain, reserving a little of the cooking water.
3. Toss orzo with the mushrooms, spices, S&P and enough cooking water to keep it moist.
4. Transfer to a dinner plate and drizzle with olive oil
