Lemon and Thyme Orzo

Things are moving slowly around here this week. I have been stuck in a book series for the past two days and can barely get myself to write this post! Good thing I have several Dream Dinner meals to make quickly this week so I can finally finish off The Hunger Games Trilogy. It is amazing, haunting, disturbing and exciting all in one. If you need something to occupy your time, thoughts and dreams for a while check it out.

Lemon and Thyme Orzo

1 cup chicken broth
2 cups water
pinch red pepper flakes
1 garlic clove
3/4 cup orzo
zest from 1/2 lemon
1 Tb dried thyme
salt
Bring to boil water and chicken broth.
Stir in garlic, red pepper flakes and orzo.

Cook for 10 minutes or until absorbed.. Stir every few minutes.
Stir in thyme and lemon zest.
Season with salt.

I served my orzo with baked shrimp scampi.
