Thank you for posting my new favorite side dish! This was DELISH! DH and I both loved it. I did as another posted and added about 3 Tbsp diced onion and about 1 clove minced garlic before adding the pasta. I also only used 1 Tbsp butter (just trying to cut back where I can). Used fresh basil from the garden. Love the texture of this and the parm makes it extra extra creamy! This is definitely a keeper for us. Thanks for posting!
August 6, 2012 - Delicious and easy - will make again.<br/><br/>Updated: Made a few times and continues to be a winner. Even made it without the cheese (was out) and although it tasted different it was still yummy.
Oh my this is so good. Its such a simple recipe but the fresh basil really makes this dish. I will continue to make this through the summer. Thank you for sharing,.
I made this last night as a side dish to go with my chicken parm and it was delightful! I did add 1 clove of garlic and 3 Tbls of onion to the butter and sauted them for about 5 minutes before adding the orzo. I think that added tons of flavor! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
Fantastic! I expected this dish to be bland due to the relatively few ingredients. However, it was an excellent dish. This would be wonderful to eat in the summer, as a light and fresh pasta. I used fresh basil and omitted the salt. The parmesan is salty enough. Will definitely make again.
Very easy and tasty side dish. I've made this several times and it always comes out well. Dried basil will work if you don't have fresh - just mix it in when you add the chicken stock.
Delicious! I didn't have fresh basil and had to sub dried and it was still really good! I always forget how much I like orzo. Thanks for a good recipe!
This dish was totally awesome!! Easy to prepare and the flavor was out of this world. I followed to the "T" and doubled the recipe. Served with Southern Fried Salmon Patties #137575. Everyone loved it! Thank you for sharing this. Will definitely make again.
Very nice, very simple. Prepared recipe as is, and was very happy with the results. I don't see the need for any onion, as the parmesan adds salt and the basil adds sweetness. Your mileage may vary...
This was so good and so easy! Wonderful side dish.
