Creamy Orzo with Chickpeas and Roast Vegetables

Creamy Orzo with Chickpeas and Roast Vegetables

A creamy orzo dish with all the flavour and little fuss. Roast vegetables sound fancy, don’t they? I think, really, they’re a bit of a cheat. I never cook just plain butternut squash soup, or risotto- it’s always roast butternut squash soup or risotto – […]

Slow Cooker Marmalade Glazed Ham
