One Pot Orzo Bolognese | Easy | Beef Mince | Pasta | Quick

This amazing One Pot Orzo Bolognese is seriously tasty! It packs tons of flavour and requires minimal time & effort. It’s also far less tricky to eat than the more widely known Spaghetti Bolognese. Sound good to you? Me too! For those of you that don’t know, orzo is actually a type of pasta, even though it looks similar to rice. It tastes proper yum though I promise!

Here is what you will need to serve 3.

Then add the minced beef to the pan and start to break it apart using a wooden spatula. While the meat is still pink, season well with salt, then continue to cook and break apart until it’s completely browned.

Stirring frequently so it doesn’t catch on the bottom, simmer for 7-10 minutes until the pasta is cooked to your liking.
