    Definitey quick and easy. I'm not sure that the combination of peas and pancetta (or, turkey bacon, in my case) is to my taste. We reduced the meat from 6 ounces to 2 ounces and we thought that was plenty. We doubled the amount of cheese to get that creamy risotto like texture. We enjoyed this, but I plan on trying some other "orzotto" recipes before putting this on the regular rotation.

    This is probably the quickest weeknight dinner recipe ever. Just cook the pancetta until crisp, add the frozen peas, add the orzo pasta together with boiling water and let cook for 10 minutes. Stir in butter and Parmesan cheese and you have a delicious, comforting dinner the whole family will love. Yum!

    This is a perfect recipe for when you don't have a lot of time on your hands but you need a dinner that is warm and soothing and easy to make. Similar to the flavours of a quick linguine recipe from Nigella Bites, this is easy to eat comfort food.
