Portly Cooks | Mushroom Orzo Risotto

Risotto, I love it but can never be bothered to make it. My normal foray into the world of risotto is those packet mixes you can get from the supermarket (this includes when I lived in Italy… I’m sorry). I have however found an easier way (maybe I’m late to the game here) but Orzo…
