Makes: 4 servings
Start to Finish 30 mins
Red Beans with Orzo
  • 1 14  ounce can  chicken broth
  • 1 1/2  cups  water
  • 1 1/3  cups  dried orzo pasta (rosamarina)
  • 1/4  cup  finely chopped onion
  • 1  teaspoon  herbes de Provence or dried Italian seasoning, crushed
  • 1 15  ounce can  red beans or pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1  ounce  prosciutto or cooked ham, cut into thin strips (about 1/3 cup)
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh flat-leaf parsley

1. In a medium saucepan, combine chicken broth and the water; bring to boiling. Stir in uncooked orzo, onion, and herbes de Provence. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes or just until orzo is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, stirring often.
