Ingredients

1 skinless turkey breast, cut into strips
1 onion, sliced thin
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 16 ounce can chopped tomatoes, (or 1 ½ pounds plum tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped)
1 ½ cups dried orzo
2 cups water
1 cup fresh broccoli florets

Instructions

Preheat large skillet over medium heat, about 3 minutes. Test the surface with a few water droplets. If the droplets bead up and dance across the surface, the pan is hot enough to brown the turkey and seal in juices. Place the turkey strips in the pan; it will stick at first while browning. When the turkey loosens, about 3-5 minutes, turn it to brown on the other side. About 4-5 minutes.

Add onion and garlic, sauté 2-3 minutes. Reduce to low heat, add tomatoes and mix well. Push mixture to center of pan. Pour dried orzo around outside rim of pan, pour water over orzo; cover.

Cook for 15 minutes; top with broccoli, cover and cook about 10 minutes. Serve directly from pan.
