Expert Tips

Orzo, a rice-shaped pasta, also goes by the name rosamarina, which means "rose of the sea."

To seed a cucumber, cut it in half lenghtwise and scrape out the seeds with a teaspoon, small melon baller or grapefruit spoon.

Substitute low-fat for regular mayonnaise and skim milk for half-and-half to slash the fat per serving from 16 grams to 3 grams.
