Secret Recipe Club


Risotto Style Orzo

Secret Recipe Club

Last month I noticed that a number of the food blogs I follow were posting about some Secret Recipe Club, and I was intrigued.  I am always looking for new blog groups to join and I this one has a really great concept.  Each blogger that joins is assigned a blog to pick a recipe from and then posts that recipe on a certain day.  As soon as I got my blog assignment I jumped right on over to The Daily Dish to find my recipe!  I was originally going to make this dish for my Birthday BBQ but instead it became the perfect weeknight dinner when things got a little crazy.  I did make some changes from the original recipe and it was a big hit!

Ingredients: (serves 4)

  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 squash, diced
  • 2 tbsp EVOO
  • 1 cup orzo
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Heat the Olive Oil over medium heat in a large saute pan.  Add the garlic, onion, and squash and  cook until tender.  
  2. Add the orzo, vegetable broth, water, and white wine then bring the mixture to a boil before covering and turning heat to low.  Stir often to make sure the orzo doesn’t stick. 
  3. Stir in the tomatoes, basil leaves, and Parmesan cheese then Serve! 

I had a great time with this assignment and I’m looking forward to see what blog I get assigned next month.
