Sausage Orzo Skillet

Rush-Hour Recipes Cookbook
This is my fourth and final recipe I tried for my review of Gooseberry Patch's new Rush-Hour Recipes Cookbook! I liked each recipe that I tried and I have a long list of recipes that I still want to try.  I think this is a great cookbook and I am very happy with it!  I'm sure whoever wins it will love it too! 
This Sausage Orzo Skillet is in the 5-Ingredient Favorites section and not only does it have very few ingredients, but it is also made in one skillet! You gotta love recipes that have easy cleanup.  

I thought this was yummy!  It is a perfect last minute recipe to have on hand!  I thought I was going to think of it more as a side than a main dish, but once it was all done and I was eating it, I totally felt like it was a main dish! Very satisfying and filling!  I will for sure make this again.

Sausage Orzo Skillet
from: Rush-Hour Recipes submitted by Julie Lundblad

1 Lb. ground pork sausage 
14 1/2 oz. can beef broth
14 1/2 oz. can stewed tomatoes
1 1/4 c. orzo pasta, uncooked
Optional: Italian seasoning, to taste

In a large skillet over medium heat, brown sausage; drain.  Add broth and tomatoes with their juice, bring to a boil.  Stir in orzo; sprinkle with Italian seasoning, if using.  Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, until orzo is tender.  Makes 4 servings.

Jenn's Notes: I only used 1/2 pound of sausage, because that was all I had.  I also didn't have stewed tomatoes, so I added diced tomatoes instead and added some extra spices like thyme and rosemary (I know that makes it more than 5 ingredients, but spices shouldn't count)!
