Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Roasted Red Pepper Orzo With Goats' Cheese

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Deseed the red pepper[s] (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and cut them into strips

Peel and cut the red onions into wedges

2 Roasted Red Pepper Orzo With Goats' Cheese

Add the red pepper and red onion to a baking tray with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt

Give everything a good mix up and put the tray in the oven for 20-25 min or until softened and beginning to colour – these are your roasted vegetables

3 Roasted Red Pepper Orzo With Goats' Cheese

While the vegetables are in the oven, boil a kettle

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Dissolve the Knorr vegetable stock cube[s] in 550ml [1.1L] boiled water

4 Roasted Red Pepper Orzo With Goats' Cheese

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick, with a matching lid) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the chopped garlic and dried chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and cook for 30 secs or until fragrant

Add the orzo pasta and tomato paste and cook for 1 min further

5 Roasted Red Pepper Orzo With Goats' Cheese

Add the vegetable stock to the pan and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, covered, for 15 min or until the orzo is tender with a slight bite

Tip: Stir the orzo occasionally to prevent it from sticking!

6 Roasted Red Pepper Orzo With Goats' Cheese

While the orzo is cooking, chop the basil finely, including the stalks (saving a few leaves for garnish)

Slice the black olives

7 Roasted Red Pepper Orzo With Goats' Cheese

Once the orzo is cooked, add the roasted vegetables to the pan with the black olives and red wine vinegar

Add the chopped basil (save the leaves for garnish) and stir it all together – this is your roasted red pepper orzo

Tip: Add a splash of water if your orzo is looking a little dry!
