This zesty, good-for-you recipe is perfect for a family dinner. "Pickling" the meat with citrus makes for a quicker prep time.
Greek-style chimichurri and feta sauce pack a delicious flavor punch. You can also serve the three-ingredient sauce with cut veggies, pita chips or dolloped on salad.
This is a great way to fill up a thermos! Orzo’s shape is fun, and so is rolling the little meatballs!
Makes 2 big thermosfuls
Heat the EVOO over medium heat in a medium pot. Sauté the onion and carrot for five minutes, then add the broth and bring up to a boil.
Mix the meat with cheese, breadcrumbs, egg, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. If the mixture is too moist, add a bit more breadcrumbs.
When the soup comes to a boil, roll and drop 1-inch meatballs into the broth. Stir in the orzo and cook for five minutes. Ladle the soup into two large thermoses. The pasta will not be done, but it will continue to cook while in the thermoses. Note: If you will be eating the soup right away, fully cook the orzo in the broth, according to the package directions.
