1/2 pound sausage
1 onion, chopped
1 2lb-3oz can of italian tomatoes
2 cans chicken broth
1 tsp crushed basil
1/2 cup orzo (I'm going to use penne, since I have it on hand)
salt and pepper to taste
Cook sausage and saute onions. Add tomatoes, broth, basil, salt and pepper, bring to a boil. Stir in orzo. Simmer 20 minutes & serve.
(Note: You may want to add more chicken broth or it sometimes gets more like a stew when leftovers are refrigerated (I think the orzo absorbs the liquid) - but even as a "stew" it's great).
