Orzo With Pesto, Tomatoes and Green Peppers

Orzo with Pesto, Tomatoes and Green Peppers

I have so much basil that I spent this morning making tons of pesto. So for lunch today I made this little pasta dish for my honey and I. Veggies from the garden and a little help from the can. Although I have tomatoes from the garden, I used the cans to save time. Sometimes you just need to save time…

Orzo with Pesto, Tomatoes and Green Peppers
1 lb orzo noodles
1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 lb sweet sausage
2 green peppers, diced
1 onion, diced
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
1/4 cup fresh oregano, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 cans diced tomatoes, drained and rinsed

In a large sauce pot, cook beef and sausage until brown and tender, making sure to break up with a spatula. Add herbs, garlic, peppers, tomatoes and onions and cook on medium for 30 minutes.

    1. I really like them… I was turned on to them by a good Italian friend of mine. Before that I had never had them before.
