DIRECTIONS

  • heat the olive oil in a skillet over about medium-high heat.
  • add onion and saute for a few minutes
  • add garlic and orzo pasta and saute until the orzo is starting to brown slightly.
  • add a dash of salt and pepper. BE CARFUL WITH THE SALT! with the chik. broth and parmesan cheese it will be to salty if you add too much.
  • Start adding the warmed chicken broth a little at a time letting it evaporate before you add more. Do this with about half of the chicken broth and then pour in the rest of it.
  • Let this come back to a simmer.
  • cover and reduce heat to low.
  • simmer for about 30 minutes or until orzo is al dente.
  • Just before serving add parmesan cheese to taste. I use a couple of palms full.
