I had forgotten about this recipe for a while. I made it for a crowd many years ago and was asked for the recipe by a few of the guests. They are still raving about it. Since they reminded me of it I have put it back into my regular rotation of recipes.
Orzo is pasta in the shape of rice and makes a great side dish hot or as a cold salad. Toasting the orzo in the oven before cooking it is an unusual step and it gives it a wonderful, nutty flavour. This makes a great side for pork or chicken. The mushrooms contribute to the nutty, earthy flavour of it so anything that mushrooms go well with, this will too. I served it with schnitzel in the spirit of Jaeger schnitzel.
The recipe calls for fresh tarragon. If you like tarragon go for it. I like it better without but my guests liked it in – so – it is up to you!
This makes a lot- about 12 servings so it is great for a crowd. You may want to halve it if you only have a few people or you will be eating left overs! May not be a bad thing – it reheats well!
