    Cook’s tip Orzo is a handy, quick-cook pasta that can be sprinkled into hearty soups and stews to add body and thicken the juices. But any other small pasta shapes can be used instead, or even long grain rice. Just cook until tender and add a little extra stock or water to loosen the sauce, if needed.
