Pasta night just got so easy, it’s mind-boggling. Everything in this recipe (and we really mean everything) is made in a single pan. And since the orzo is cooked risotto-style, with just the minimum 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, it’s about as big and bold as you can get.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
