This has easily become my most favorite side dish! Thank you pinterest! It tastes like the good old Rice a Roni – but without the tons of sodium and SOOO much better!
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup orzo
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped basil
salt and pepper, to taste
n a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the orzo and cook, stirring often, until lightly toasted. Add the chicken broth to the pan and cover. Cook for 15 minutes or until the liquid has absorbed. Stir in the Parmesan, basil, and salt and pepper. Continue stirring until the Parmesan has melted.
