Asparagus and Turkey Sausage Orzo

I love meals like this one! I love cooking with orzo...I am not sure why, it is just so darn good! This meal was a huge hit and the asparagus was excellent with the turkey sausage. Perfect for any quick weeknight dinner!


1 lb. Italian turkey sausage (i got the spicy kind, yum :)
1 large onions, chopped
1 cup chicken stock or broth
1 cup water
1 cup uncooked orzo
1 can asparagus, drained
2 tablespoon sliced pimientos (optional)

1. In a non-stick skillet, cook and crumble turkey sausage and onion for about 5 minutes.
2. Stir in broth and water. Heat to boiling. Stir in orzo, boil 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium cover and cook 6-8 minutes until pasta is tender. Add asparagus and pimientos and the very end for about a minute,just to heat through. DONE!! Easy right?!
* This is great with muffins(cranberry are perfect), garlic bread, broccoli, a side salad or any veggie! Now you have a healthy dinner ready to go!
