She's done it again – another delish dish for you and a dog from Every Day with Rachael Ray! Giving pups a lil helping of this veggie-laden meal can be a healthy treat for "peas and happiness." Remember, there can be too much of a good thing so be certain to give pets an appropriate portion of this recipe, substituting it for a snack or meal portion, not in addition, to keep pooches slim and trim. To see this yum-o recipe,
- 1 cup orzo
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 4 carrots, sliced
- Drizzle of honey (optional)
- ½ cup grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese
- Salt and Pepper (for people’s portions only)
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the orzo, and cook until just before al dente, about 7 minutes. Add the peas and cook for 1 minute; drain and return the pasta and peas to the pot.
While the pasta is cooking, in a medium saucepan, cover the carrots with water and bring to a boil. Season with salt and cook until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain, reserving about ½ cup cooking water, then transfer the carrots to a food processor. Add the reserved cooking water and honey, if using, and process until smooth.
Stir the carrot puree into the pasta and peas. Stir in the parmigiano-reggiano. Portion out half for the dog and let cool before serving; season the people’s portion with salt and pepper.
