This quick dish provides a perfect side to a more complicated main course.
I loved the flavor and combination of basil and parmesan cheese.
(Nate, who doesn't enjoy parmesan, prefered to abstain! :-)
I hope you are having a lovely week! Look forward to some 4th of July ideas coming soon! :-)
Orzo with Parmesan and Basil
3 Tablespoons Butter
1-½ cup Orzo
3 cups Chicken Or Vegetable Stock
6 Tablespoons Fresh Chopped Basil
1 cup Parmesan Cheese
½ teaspoons Salt
¼ teaspoons Pepper
Melt the butter over medium heat. Add the orzo and saute for a few minutes, until the orzo starts to get golden brown. Add the broth and cover and simmer for 20 minutes, until all the broth has been absorbed. Remove from the heat, add the basil and Parmesan and salt and pepper to taste.
