Leyla Wheelhouse sums up her inspiration for this Barilla® Chickpea Orzo Saffron Pilaf with Lamb in a single word: comfort. The dish features lamb shanks seasoned with coriander, cumin, cinnamon and salt atop a pilaf seasoned with raisins, turmeric and saffron. The chef is decidedly enthusiastic about her impressions of the Barilla® Chickpea Orzo. “Its unique, supple qualities make it a coveted complement to any entrée as both the starch and the vegetable,” she says. “Here, it soaks up the rich flavors of the lamb sauce, but stands on its own as a sophisticated pilaf.”
