Any one know this method?

  1. Yes.

    Seems Alain Ducasse does that; not quite cooked like a risotto, but more like stewed in a little bit of sauce; it probably work best with "meatier" pasta and not Orzo.

    1. I make mushroom orzo this way. It's great - but it's not risotto.

      1. I made this not too long ago: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...
        It was excellent! Made an enormous amount, but incredibly tasty. Thanks for reminding me, I need to make it again.

        1. I've done it with baby pastina.

          1. I know I say Rachel Ray do this with spaghetti fairly recently....can't think of it right now but if I find it i'll post it. Does this ring a bell to anyone else??
