Makes: about 3 quarts
cup extra virgin olive oil

In This Recipe
- Heat the olive oil in a 4 quart soup pot and add the diced onion. Saute for a few minutes and then add the minced garlic and oregano. Continue to sauté until the garlic smells fragrant.
- Stir in the crushed tomatoes and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the broth or water and bring up to a boil. Stir in the orzo and simmer for about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring often so the orzo doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot. Serve nice and hot in bowls garnished with the cheese if you like.
- NOTE: If re-heating you may need to add a little extra broth or water as the orzo soaks up so much liquid.
