Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Yummmmmmmyyyyyy.  And barely more effort than a rice-a-roni box.  Totally will make again.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil
Serves:  4
Approx. 420 calories in 1/4 recipe

  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1-½ cup Orzo
  • 3 cups Chicken Or Vegetable Stock
  • 6 Tablespoons Fresh Chopped Basil
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Pepper

Melt the butter over medium heat. Add the orzo and saute for a few minutes, until the orzo starts to get golden brown. Add the broth and cover and simmer for 20 minutes, until all the broth has been absorbed. Remove from the heat, add the basil and Parmesan and salt and pepper to taste.
