This side dish is easy to make and really tasty,, everyone loves it! Try to use a good-quality Parmesan or romano cheese for this, the common store-bought brand that you buy off the shelves will not do this recipe any justice. The pasta will thicken up upon sitting so it is best served right away, or shortly after cooking. I have even added in toasted sliced almonds to the pilaf after cooking. If you want a creamier textured dish then add in another 1/2 cup broth. It is important to lightly brown the orzo with the onions and garlic in butter before adding in the broth this really improves the flavor. You will love this!
