Get Ready to Indulge in One-Pan Orzo with Artichokes
This dish is a personal favorite of mine when I’m in the mood for a quick, hearty meal after a long day. What’s great about One-Pan Orzo with Artichokes is that it’s not only simple to make but also filled with a myriad of flavors that are sure to leave you feeling satisfied.

Don’t forget to season the dish with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes for a little heat. Once everything is cooked, finish off with a squeeze of lemon juice to brighten up the dish.
Trust me when I say that this One-Pan Orzo with Artichokes is a crowd-pleaser, whether you’re cooking for yourself or for a group of friends. You can switch up the vegetables if you’d like and add some protein with sliced chicken or chickpeas for a more filling meal.
