Recipe type: Main Dish
Serves: 6-8 servings
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large zucchini, sliced into discs and then halved
  • 8 oz white mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large onion, cut in half and then thinly sliced
  • 4 chicken apple sausages, cut into round discs
  • 3 cups orzo pasta
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 14 oz can petite diced tomatoes with liquid
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Heat olive oil in a large heavy pot over medium heat.
  2. Add onions and garlic and cook about 1 minute.
  3. Add zucchini (or vegetable of choice), mushrooms and sausage and cook another 2 minutes.
  4. Pour in orzo pasta, chicken broth, and diced tomatoes, bring to a boil over high heat.
