Chicken, Olive, and Orzo Bake
This is a great one-pot dish full of summer flavors that can also be enjoyed in the winter when you want to introduce some sunshine into your home on those long, dark days. Orzo is about the same size as a grain of rice and has a lovely texture, which holds sauce beautifully. Click here for more of our best chicken recipes.Click here for more information about Bomba!

Greek-Style Orzo Salad
Typically, I don't love pasta salads because of their lack of flavor, but this delicious salad bursts with the sunshine of a Greek island. With the addition of raw spinach, feta cheese, olives, and sun-dried tomatoes, this is a perfect healthy salad served as a light lunch or as an accompaniment to grilled and roasted meats, chicken, and fish. The best news is that the flavors only improve when prepared the day before, which also makes this the perfect picnic or buffet salad! See all salad recipes.

Lamb Orzo
My tiny Manhattan kitchen and distaste for doing dishes have turned me into the queen of the one-pot meals over the years. This particular one-pot meal is not only super easy, but it tastes great (my hyper-critical, culinary-blessed roommate even said so). Serve with plain yogurt, Simple Tzatziki, or feta cheese, and a side of toasted pita. Click here to see 9 Divine Greek Recipes.

This pasta salad is fresh, bright, and flavorful. Chopped dill, Kalamata olives, and feta cheese add bursts of flavor, while a dressing of champagne vinegar and lemon juice complement the shrimp.  Click here to see 10 Best Summer Pasta Salad Recipes

Pumpkin Sage Orzo Risotto Recipe
This risotto was inspired by a favorite Memphis dish. By inspired, I mean that I was quite intrigued by the concept of taking what would normally be a risotto dish with small chunks of chicken and substituting a vegetable — er — fruit (yes, people, pumpkins are fruit!). You can make it the traditional way with short-grain or Arborio rice, or try it as pictured, with orzo (that also cooks faster).
