Orzo with Crispy Salami


This probably falls under the category of top five favorite and most popular side dishes. 

This. Is. Legit. 

One of my most favorite sides. 


It freezes amazingly and it’s even better heated up the second day. 

Like whaaaaat??? I totally promise. 

Make it. And you’ll love me even more. 

I’m warning you, try not to eat half the pan in one sitting. I didn’t. I’m speaking about a friend. 

Of course. Clogged arteries? 

Check! WORTH IT!
