Orzo with Caramelized Vegetables recipe - The Daily Meal
There are few pastas more satisfying than orzo, with its plump, chewy grains so much like rice, but on a grander scale and more tender. But it's often overlooked even by convenience-minded cooks, which is silly, given how fast it can be to prepare. One of my favorite ways to eat it is with caramelized onions, garlic, mushrooms and sweet potato. —Faith Durand, TheKitchn.comThis recipe is by Faith Durand and was originally published in the Chicago Tribune.

Italian wedding soup is a staple dish in Italian cookery. Many versions of the soup exist but its key ingredients include: chicken broth, miniature meatballs, tiny soup-style pasta, chopped greens and freshly grated cheese. Go the extra mile and make your own chicken stock, or just buy the store-bought stuff for an easy weeknight comfort meal. This recipe is by Joe Crea and was originally published in The Chicago Tribune.
