Orzo Aglio e Olio - Healthy lunch box idea

Ingredients: To serve 1-2 persons

- 1 cup orzo pasta

- About 4 tablespoons Aglio e Olio sauce (I used the fresh one by Saucery )

If you don't have access to the Saucery brand, then make the sauce yourself using the below 5 ingredients! Very easy.

-1/3 cup olive oil (Use a really good quality, it makes a difference)

-About 7-9 big cloves of garlic shopped very small

-1 teaspoon chilly flakes

-A big handful of finely chopped parsley or basil leaves (You can throw any good herbs of your choice)

-A pinch of salt

- Water in a pot to cook the pasta

- 2 cubes of chicken/vegetable stock


- In your pot, bring the water to a boil and add the chicken or vegetable stock cubes to it. Stir until it has dissolved.

- Add the orzo pasta and boil until it has cooked to the tenderness you like.

- Drain your pasta and set aside

- Add the aglio e olio sauce and pasta to a pan or wok, mix well, and then heat it. This is because a very heated pan could burn your garlic and that ruins the dish.

- You can top it with grated parmesan cheese if you like right before serving. I skipped the cheese.

NOTE: The choice of sides is completely yours. In this picture I have put very non authentic sides of mustard marinated grilled fish fillet along with a simple parsley-tomato-cucumber salad. You could serve it with chicken or grilled vegetables or if your heart desires, some leftover gravy! Yum!
