Orzo Fried Rice with Turkey Thighs2017-07-24
Combine pasta salad with stir-fry for an orzo “fried rice.” Substitute other meat and vegetables as you need, or make this entirely vegetarian.
Cook the Barilla® pasta for 1 minute less than the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent from sticking.
Working in batches, stir-fry the turkey with sesame oil, until cooked through. Remove.
Heat more sesame oil and saute the garlic, vegetables, and ginger, until lightly browned. Season with soy sauce and let it reduce slightly. Toss it with the turkey and orzo.
Serve portions warm, garnished with spring onions and sesame seeds.
