Orzotto is the name for our lighter, risotto-style dish made with small, rice-shaped pasta called “orzo”, which has a velvety texture when cooked. Fresh beetroot gives this its distinctive colour and is paired with our mustard seed, peppercorn and dill blend. A white wine reduction provides depth and the creamy goat's cheese melts into the pasta along with wilted rocket. This dish is excellent as a light supper.

Our 30 minute recipe

  1. Cook the onion 

    Boil 400ml of water in your kettle. 

    Melt the butter in a non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Add the onion. Stir occasionally to soften it for 3 mins, then add the MUSTARD DILL SEASONING and mix it in.

  2. Add the beetroot 

    Add the orzo pasta and fry for 1 min, then add the WHITE WINE REDUCTION and a splash of water to the pan.  

    Add the beetroot and mix well.

  3. Let it simmer 

    Add the ORZOTTO STOCK with 400ml boiling water. Bring it to the boil then cover with a lid (slightly askew), reduce the heat to medium-low and let it cook for 15-20 mins, stirring every so often.
    You can add 100ml more water if it’s getting too dry.

  4. Add the goat's cheese 

    When the pasta is cooked to your liking (it should be soft, like risotto), stir in half of the goat’s cheese

    Add a handful of rocket and stir it in to wilt it.

  5. Serve! 

    Serve the pasta in bowls, topped with some fresh rocket and a couple of teaspoons of goat’s cheese as garnish, which will slowly melt. 

    If you’re having walnuts, sprinkle them on top and get stuck in.

Was nice but wouldn't have again. Wasn't pink colour, and a little bit too much of the same flavour.

Alison - 21st August 2020

I used spinach instead of rocket and grated cheddar instead of feta as I'm not keen on Feta. But it was delicious.

This was amazing. Wasn’t expecting this dish to be so delicious. The purple look may put some people off.... but you have to try this.

Beautiful! I’m not a huge fan of overly beetrooty meals or goats cheese for that matter, but I was given some freshly cooked homegrown beetroot so decided to give this recipe a try. I’m glad I did because it’s probably now one of my favourite SimplyCook meals! The beetroot, goats cheese and rocket all work beautifully together. Restaurant quality. Goes great with a glass of Sauvignon blanc
