    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large saucepan, bring the broth to a boil over medium-high heat.
    2. 2
      Stir in the orzo and reduce the heat to medium-low.
    3. 3
      Simmer the orzo and broth uncovered, stirring now and then to prevent sticking on the bottom of the pot, about 8-10 minutes, until the orzo is tender. The orzo mixture should be thick and syrupy when it is finished cooking – not dry. If it seems as though the orzo isn’t finished cooking but looks dry, add 1/4 cup chicken broth and continue to cook.
    4. 4
      When the orzo is tender, remove the pot from the heat.
    5. 5
      Stir in the green onions and cheese.
    6. 6
      Add the pepper and additional salt to taste, if needed.
    7. 7
      Garnish with additional green onions and serve immediately!
    8. 8
      She states "The dish has a tendency to become a bit dry the longer it sits so make haste and serve as quickly as can be!".

      I liked this but no one else in my family did. I followed the recipe as written other then I used 32 ounces of chicken broth.
