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.
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.
