Orzo with Radicchio and Sun Dried Tomatoes

I'm one of those people that becomes easily obsessed with thing...
for example, 
whenever I have something that is extremely tasty at a restaurant I always try to make it at home to re-create the recipe.
Sometimes I'm on the money, sometimes not.

(I guess that's why I am a Speech-Language Pathologist and not a chef.)

I had this dish in a restaurant a while ago and the husband and I both loved it.
So.... long story short, I was determined to make it again.
(It only took about 10 times!!)

Orzo with Radicchio and Sun Dried Tomatoes

1 package of orzo
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons yellow onion, diced
1 head radicchio, diced
4 ounces sun-dried tomatoes, diced
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar*
salt and pepper

Cook orzo according to package directions.  While orzo is cooking, heat pan with butter an olive oil.  Saute onions and garlic until tender.  Add the radicchio and cook until wilted .  Drain the orzo and mix into the pan with the onions, garlic, and radicchio.  Add the sun-dried tomatoes and balsamic vinegar and mix well.  Season with salt and pepper to  taste.

(*You can also add more balsamic vinegar depending upon your taste.)

I hope you become obsessed with this too!!
