Lemony Mediterranian Orzo

Look at this- two vegetarian, lent-friendly recipes in a row! I actually made this last night and served it with some chicken (as you can see here) but I’m honestly not a big chicken fan so I didn’t even eat mine. I’ve made the orzo a few times, and it makes a great meal on […]
