I made this recently it was really good!

Ingredients:
  • 4 rashers of bacon
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • one zucchini
  • Italian herbs
  • 2 tomatoes
  • orzo
  • olive oil
  • one medium eggplant
Method:
  1. cook the bacon and keep aside
  2. saute the onion and garlic in olive oil for 5 minutes then add the veggies and herbs
  3. add the tomatoes and simmer for 10 min, then add the bacon
  4. boil the orzo till al dente then mix with laughing cow cheese
  5. then add the bacon and veggies this is so tasty
Jasmine and me loved it. You know I only recently started to use orzo after seeing it on folks blogs thats what I love about blogging it inspires us to try new things.

Also today the lovely Claudia of Journey of an Italian Cook who is a playwright by the way, very cool gave me an award, you are to pass it along and say 10 honest things about yourself, well I have done it before and I am honest all the time LOL


I just mentioned some cool blogs but here are a couple more new ones:

I want to give Claudia the friendship award ....

Love
