RePosting in Memory of Cousin Gina Depalma

Y'all know that Cousin Gina lost an eight-year battle against ovarian cancer, passing away in December of '15. It's October. This 2009 entry appears again, in her memory.
With love...

Cousin Gina DePalma has battled ovarian cancer for 1 1/2 years now. Won't you please join in the fight to eradicate all forms of this sinister disease? No family is left unscathed by its brutality.

Insalata Calda di OrzO - Warm OrzO Salad
Created For O*Foods

1 cup Tri-Color (plain, sun-dried tomat& spinach) OrzO
3 chopped Sun-Dried TomatOes
Salt to taste

Sweet Onion - finely chopped
4 cloves Garlic - chopped
1 Box Chopped Pomì TomatOes
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Romaine Lettuce
Sliced leftover PollO
Fresh garden TomatO
Chives - the smallest member of the Onion family

Cook orzo with sun-dried tomatoes (ah, the flavor) in boiling, salted water till al dente. While it's cooking, sauté onion and garlic in EVOO till translucent or very lightly browned. Add chopped Pomì tomatoes; season with oregano, pepper and vino; allow to simmer for a quick sauce.

Combine about 1/3 of the sauce with the al dente orzo and let it sit while you begin to slice chicken and prepare remaining garnish items.

Serve with extra, room-temp sauce and sliced lemon, for zip. Delicious cold, as well.

Buon AppetitO!
