Orzo with Lamb, Olives & Feta

November/December 1998, EatingWell Serves Two

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (24 votes)

Sure, orzo is good in soup, but there's no need to stop there. Here it's a base for a bold blend of spices, tomato sauce and flavorful ground lamb. The optional pinch of crushed red pepper will add the heat that many crave.

"I made this for my son's 16th birthday dinner and he LOVED it. We all loved it. Having two male meat-loving teens, I did add more lamb than required. I also added more red pepper than called for as we tend to like a little more punch...

Plenty flavorful and easy to make!

I wish I'd read the reviews before I made this because other people were right - it needs more lamb. I can never get enough lamb, though! Also, I'm not a fan of cinnamon in dishes like this so I cut the cinnamon in half and I was happy with that choice. Definitely making this again!

This recipe is fantastic, my family and I loved it. I love topping it with some freshly chopped basil and oregano. A denfinite keeper I will be sure to make again.

I made this for my son's 16th birthday dinner and he LOVED it. We all loved it. Having two male meat-loving teens, I did add more lamb than required. I also added more red pepper than called for as we tend to like a little more punch in our food...I would make this again for my family and have added it to my list of pot luck recipes given the ease of making this as well as cost.

This is great, you should use at least 1/2-3/4 lb of the ground lamb and be generous with the feta cheese and hot pepper or it tends to be a little bland.
