Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Rub olive oil across an 8"x8" baking dish (or dish with equivalent volume), and sprinkle with lemon zest.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the olive oil and a couple of pinches of salt. Cook until the onion softens and becomes transparent, a few minutes.
  3. Add the farro, stir until well coated, and cook for another minute or two.
  4. Stir in the tomato sauce and the broth. Bring just to a simmer, remove from heat, and stir in about 3/4 of the cheese. Adjust the seasoning as needed.
  5. Transfer to the prepared baking dish, cover with foil, poke a few holes in the foil, and bake for about 45 minutes, or until the grains are cooked through. Uncover the dish for the last few minutes of baking to get a bit of color on the top - or brown carefully under a broiler for a few minutes.
  6. Serve sprinkled with the remaining cheese, fresh oregano, and a drizzle of olive oil.
