  • For a version that is not quite so rich, you may omit the Parmesan cheese.

  • Add the salt and orzo and cook until the orzo is tender and has absorbed almost all of the cooking liquid, 8 to 9 minutes.
  • Stir in the butter, Parmesan cheese, lemon zest and juice and parsley.
  • Serve immediately.

    This is my go-to orzo recipe because it complements and upgrades so many dishes. I pretty much always leave out the Parmesan because the flavor is great without it, and I often use this alongside various quiches or vegetable pies, so I don't want the extra cheese. Really Delicious!

    Absolutely wonderful orzo side dish! My other half appreciated the Parmesan cheese in it, & I thoroughly loved the use of lemon & parsley! A very nice combination of flavors! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
