One Pan Oven Baked Sausage Orzo - oven roasted sausages in a rich tomato orzo sauce packed with vegetables, then topped with feta and basil pesto.
Preheat oven to 180c (350f).
Place olive oil (1 tbsp) in a baking dish, then place in the oven to heat for 5 minutes, then add chopped capsicum (bell pepper) to baking dish, stirring to coat. Bake uncovered for 5 minutes.
Add chicken stock (500ml/2 cups), orzo (250g/8oz), passata (400g/14oz) and dried basil (1 tsp), oregano (1 tsp) & garlic powder (½ tsp) to pan with capsicum and stir well. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 15 minutes.
