    Cindy's Note:

    This is a flavorful side dish. I usually serve it with roasted chicken or Italian sausages. Makes plenty so there is some leftover for lunch.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook orzo in chicken broth until tender (add water if necessary).
    2. 2
      Sauté the the vegetables in butter until tender adding the garlic near the end to prevent burning.
    3. 3
      This is where I usually add a little salt and fresh cracked pepper.
    4. 4
      Drain the orzo and combine with the cooked vegetables and add the chopped parsley.
    5. 5
      The heat of the other ingredients will wilt the parsley.
    6. 6
      Stir in the juice of the 1/2 lemon and olive oil if desired.
    7. 7
      Serve with grated Parmesan.
    8. 8
      Enjoy.

      LOVE IT, had to tweak a little for what I had on hand but this is a recipe I will save and reuse again. I like it when a recipe is a little flexible and this one gets 10 stars in my book. Thank you for posting!

      Nice side dish. I used fresh mushrooms and regular chicken stock with some Italian herbs. :)
