A few weeks ago I found a recipe for Meatballs & Orzo on Pinterest. I pinned it to my dinner ideas board and quickly forgot about it. As I was meal planning for this week, I found that pin and thought it sounded like a good cool-weather dinner.
I made the meatballs ahead of time because I thought it would be easier (it was!).
When it was time to start thinking about dinner, Colin and I set to work. He helped make the orzo and the cream sauce.
After we mixed the cream sauce with the orzo and peas, dinner was ready. I dished up a bowl for everyone and we sat down to eat.
No one enjoyed dinner. Our sauce was too thin and tasted like warm milk. The meatballs weren’t my usual and had a funny taste. If they hadn’t been covered in cream sauce, the orzo and peas would have been good!
While Colin and I had a good time making dinner, I don’t know that we’d make this recipe again. I’m glad we gave it a try, though!
Have you made meatballs & orzo?
