Orzo With Parmesan Cheese

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by vrvrvr

A lovely side dish -- from "What's For Dinner" by Maryana Vollstedt. (Note: if you find your orzo sticking to the bottom of the pan after cooking, just remove from the burner and place on a hotpad with the lid on -- let it sit about 5 minutes, then stir.)

Easy and tasty side dish! Was very creamy and would pair well with chicken. Really quite a pretty dish, too, with the fresh parsley. Thanks so much for posting this; will definitely make again!
