This is another recipe from Elly Says Opa. I have only made orzo a couple of times, but it is quickly becoming one of my favorite side dishes. The orzo, paired with the pork milanese and green beans, made for an excellent dinner.
8 oz. orzo
2 Tbsp butter
1 clove garlic, minced
2.5 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup pecorino or Parmesan cheese, or a combination of both
Heat butter until melted. Add garlic and saute until fragrant.
Stir in orzo and coat in the butter, toasting slightly, for a couple of minutes.
Stir in chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until done, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Off the heat, stir in the cheese. I added about 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley.
