Sausage and Orzo (TNT)

Post by pstarkoski on Mon May 07, 2012 5:44 am

I served this when our boys came over for their Thursday weekly dinner with "the parents"! They both really love Kielbasa, but aren't too keen on zucchini, so I substituted fresh broccoli and some fresh asparagus instead. I also used chicken broth instead of the beef broth. It was a hit! I maybe should have doubled the recipe!!
