One Pot and Orzo in the same meal…perfection.  Have you tried Orzo pasta?  It looks a bit like overgrown rice 🙂  Since it is so small, it cooks pretty quickly.

This recipe combines this lovely little pasta with yummy chicken apple sausage.  I love the flavor of this sausage.  I have tried some different brands, but I usually buy this one because it is readily available at my local stores.

Greetings from the long lost blogger 🙂

It has been REALLY cold here in Michigan.  Last week we were down to -25 with the wind chill.  It’s been a really strange Fall and Winter so far.  We had a wind storm that whipped through the area leaving hundreds of downed trees and power lines.  We lost power for 3 days, but thankfully didn’t have any structural damage.  We’ve had a LOT of snow and ice.  The kids have had school cancelled more times than has been allotted for the whole year.
Today, however it is a balmy 33 degrees!

We’ve eaten a lot of our favorite recipes lately without much experimenting with new ones.  The one I have to share with you today has become an instant favorite with the whole family.  It is easy to make and uses ingredients I always have on hand.  Give it a try and come back to let me know what you think!

I love the little orzo pasta.  In this recipe it makes a delicious side dish.  It can also be used in soups, casseroles, etc.  It cooks up fast and is a great alternative to rice.
