Orzo with Sauteed Onions and Broccoli

My kids love Orzo and they love Broccoli so this side dish works for everyone.  It's easy, flavorful and healthy.  It's also something that I can whip up for a quick side dish at anytime since you can use frozen broccoli, frozen onions and dried orzo.


1/2 lb Orzo pasta
1/2 cup frozen chopped onions
1 - 16 oz bag of frozen broccoli
extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper


Boil pasta according to package directions.  Meanwhile in a large skillet sautee onions in 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil until they become translucent sabout 5 minutes.  Add frozen broccoli and sautee with onions for another 5-7 minutes until tender.  Drain pasta and add to onions and broccoli, season with salt and pepper and stir until combined.  Transfer to serving bowl, serve hot.
