Garlic Orzo

I don’t think this quite counts as a ‘real’ recipe because the main ingredient is store bought (kind of like last week….) but I don’t really care because I am loving whipping up quick dinners lately.

By the time I get off of work, do my run, and finally get home for the night, the last thing I want to do is spend an hour making a meal from scratch.

Enter the magical ready-made sauce:

Perfect for throwing together savory pasta when hangry.
