If you’ve never tried cooking pasta risotto-style, you’re in for a treat. In this recipe, orzo is boiled in just enough water to cover, so that the cooking liquid reduces into a sauce that clings to each grain (which means no draining!). It’s the perfect pasta base for adventurous add-ins, like paprika-laced chorizo, tangy tomatoes, hearty spinach, and a cheese duo of mozzarella and Parmesan.
