- Why Choose Sharp?
Orzo is a rice-shaped pasta, typically served in soups and casseroles. Combined with lean turkey and vegetables like tomatoes and bell pepper — which are excellent sources of vitamin C — this dish will leave you feeling high on energy and on health.
Cook ground turkey in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until browned. Drain. Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 15 minutes, stirring frequently until pasta is tender.
