Basil-infused Orzo Pasta

Orzo is a form of short-cut pasta, shaped like a large grain of rice and is a great alternative to larger, heavier forms of pasta for your dinner side dish. This basil-infused essential oil balances the bitterness of the oil and radicchio with the sweetness of shallots and sun-dried tomato. The main pictured is a simple pan-seared salmon basted with thyme essential oil butter. Simply delicious!
