Parmesan-Pecorino Orzo

by Melissa on March 25, 2008

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.


Parmesan-Pecorino Orzo

  • 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.
