Parmesan Orzo

This side dish makes an appearance on our dinner table at least once every couple of weeks, and I realized I didn’t have this on my blog!  I love orzo and am always looking for ways to incorporate it into our dinners.  This comes together in about 20 minutes and is an excellent complement to any main dish.  I cannot remember where I got this recipe…I’ve been making this for at least 5 years now and have it memorized at this point.

Parmesan Orzo

1 cup orzo, uncooked
1 Tbsp butter
1 can chicken brother (14.5 ounces)
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp dried parsley flakes

Melt butter in pan over medium heat.  Add orzo and stir 2-3 minutes to lightly toast.  Add broth; bring to a boil for 1 minute.  Turn heat to low, cover, and cook 15 minutes or until broth is almost absorbed and orzo is soft.  add cheese and parsley; stir.
