Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

2 tablespoons butter
1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil


Directions

DIRECTIONS


Melt butter in heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in orzo and saute until lightly browned.


Stir in chicken stock and bring to boil. Cover. Reduce heat and simmer until orzo is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 15 - 20 minutes.


Mix in Parmesan cheese and basil. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to shallow bowl. Garnish with basil sprigs.


* I didn't have any chicken broth on hand so I just used 14.5 oz of water and added some salt. We had this with some grilled chicken and peas.
