Spicy Southwest Red Pepper Orzo adds zing to many of your favorite dishes. For those unfamiliar with this intriguing pasta, Orzo is a traditional rice-shaped pasta made with Semolina Flour.

Suggested Use:
Southwest Red Pepper Orzo can be combined with any number of herbs, vegetables and seafood for an unusual and striking plate presentation. Use in Pilafs, salads, sauces or simply dressed with a light pesto.

Duram semolina flour, water, red chili pepper powder, red jalapeno powder, dehydrated egg whites, wheat protein isolate, onion powder and cumin. (Contains wheat & egg).

Basic Prep:
Add 1 cup of Orzo to 2 cups of rapidly boiling water or stock. Return to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 12 minutes until tender, yet still al dente. Or, add uncooked Orzo to soup or stew during last 12 minutes of cooking. One cup dry yields 3 cups cooked.

This Mediterranean-inspired dish can double as a pasta salad next day...if there is any left, that is. The delicious combination of tomatoes, feta, basil and shrimp is healthy and pretty. It is very versatile in that you can vary the fresh herbs, such as tarragon, parsley and oregano, or try some goat cheese in place of the feta for another excellent alternative. Let your imagination and ingredients on hand be your guide.

Pasta and Beans
Another excellent wintertime dish. When springtime flowers and nesting birds seem like nothing more than a distant memory, this is the sort of dish that makes winter seem worthwhile. Big bowls of this dish, heaping with meat, vegetables, and pasta, are even more delicious when the weather is cold and the wind blows. This makes about eight servings, depending on your appetite.

Lamb Shanks with Orzo
Orzo is a wonderful pasta that looks like large grains of rice. But it's actually made from semolina. It's delicately flavored and chewy, and absorbs any flavors it is cooked with, while retaining its firmness. Using flavored orzo adds a new dimension to the dish.

The lamb shank ends up tender and falling-off-the-bone delicious.

Orzo with Shrimp, Tomato Sauce, and Feta Cheese
A rustic, comfort food that is easy to prepare and extremely versatile. The hot orzo softens the bits of Feta cheese to a creamy consistency, making the combination especially appealing when served warm. But it's good at room temperature too, for those hot summer days...and nights.

Try substituting goat cheese for Feta, or green olives for the Kalamatas, adjust the amount of chile peppers to suit your taste.
