Pasta night just got so easy, it’s ridiculous. Everything in this recipe (and we really mean everything) comes together in a single pan. And since the orzo is cooked risotto-style, with the minimal amount of water it needs to get al dente, you don’t even have to drain it. The only thing that’s not minimal is the flavor: with chicken sausage, warmed tomatoes, and Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, taste-wise, it about as big and bold as you can get.

Instructions
1

Wash and dry all produce. Preheat broiler to high. Mince garlic. Finely chop spinach until you have 2 cups of very packed spinach. Cut lemon in half; cut one half into wedges. Cut tomatoes in half. Remove sausage from casings of 4 links (use the others as you like). Pick parsley leaves from stems and finely chop; discard stems.

2

Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large, tall-sided pan over medium-high heat (use an ovenproof pan if you have one). Add sausage, breaking up meat into pieces. Cook until just browned, about 3 minutes.

3

Add tomatoes and garlic to pan with sausage. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes start to wilt, 2-3 minutes. Add 1⅓ cup orzo (we sent more) and Italian seasoning. Cook, stirring, until orzo is coated in juices, 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.

4

Add 4 cups water, stock concentrates, and a pinch of salt to same pan. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to medium. Let simmer, stirring occasionally, until orzo is almost al dente, 7-9 minutes. Stir in spinach and cook until wilted, about 3 minutes more. TIP: If mixture seems dry, add water ¼ cup at a time until loosened.

5

Stir mozzarella and a squeeze of lemon into pan. Season with salt, pepper, and more lemon (to taste). (TIP: If your pan is not ovenproof, transfer mixture to a baking dish at this point.) Sprinkle panko and Parmesan over top of orzotto. Broil until panko is golden brown, 1-3 minutes.

6

Divide orzotto between plates. Sprinkle parsley over top. Serve with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over.
