This low-fat pasta recipe is an ideal side dish to serve with grilled or roasted beef or chicken.
Cook orzo according to package directions; drain well.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet heat margarine or butter over medium-high heat; stir in the mushrooms, leek or green onion, pepper, salt, and garlic.
Cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add water, dried marjoram (if using), and bouillon granules. Reduce heat; cook until liquid is almost absorbed, about 6 minutes. Stir in fresh marjoram, if using.
Toss mushroom mixture with pasta. Sprinkle with Romano cheese, if desired. Makes 4 to 6 side-dish servings.
