Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 qts chicken broth

*Bring chicken broth to a boil. Stir in orzo. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for ~10-12 minutes, or until pasta done. Turn off heat.

*Separate the eggs. Place egg whites in a bowl and beat until foamy (2-3 minutes). Add the yolks and continue beating until will mixed (2 minutes). Continue to beat, gradually add lemon juice. Slowly add some hot chicken broth in a thin steam while beating. Broth needs to be less than 160 degrees.
