  1. Cook orzo in a large pot of lightly salted boiling water until done, about 12 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  6. Place orzo on serving plate and pour chicken-vegetable sauce on top. (*To make this dish extra saucy, try adding Pappardelle's (7 oz.) Thai Peanut Sauce.) Best served at room temperature.
