My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1In a large saucepan, bring the broth to a boil over medium-high heat.
- 2Stir in the orzo and reduce the heat to medium-low.
- 3Simmer 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.
- 4When the orzo is tender, remove the pot from the heat.
- 5Stir in the green onions and cheese.
- 6Add the pepper and additional salt to taste, if needed.
- 7Garnish with additional green onions and serve immediately!
- 8She 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!".
