I looked in Simply the Best, WW Homestyle Favorites, and Cook It Quick but couldn't find that one. Cook It Quick does have Sweet and SPicy Chicken with Orzo but it doesn't include broccoli. It has a s&s tomato sauce.
Good Luck on your search!

2 cup cooked orzo
4 oz low-fat cheddar or colby cheese

Start the water boiling for the Orzo. Brown the Lightlife Gimme Lean, Ground Beef Style in a pan with Pam. After browning, add the Lawry's Taco Spices & Seasoning mix with water as directed to the pan and simmer. Cook the Orzo and drain. Add the cooked Orzo (2cups cooked) to the pan with the Taco seasoning and the Lightlife mix well to coat the pasta. Grate the cheese. Then split in 1/2 and top with the rest of the ingredients, including the grated cheese. I used Green Onions.. they are the best (but I could not find them on the list). YUM!
