Creamy Tomato Orzo Pasta

I know its been awhile since I've last updated. I've been consumed with activities and my kids. I had some orzo sitting in my cupboard, and wasn't too sure what I was going to do with it. I first was going to attempt a lemon orzo soup, but didn't have any broth at the time. I had tomato sauce that I purchased from whole foods, so decided to make a creamy pasta.

Orzo pasta
Tomato sauce
Vegan beef grounds (Yves brand)
Fresh chopped cilantro

Boil orzo, until al dente', then drain excess water and pour back in pot
Add tomato sauce and stir until creamy
Add vegan beef grounds
Season to taste (fresh ground pepper, sea salt, garlic powder) and top with cilantro/parmesan (galaxy brand)
