Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Hands-down, this is one of my all time favourites! The flavors blend together perfectly for a wonderfully tasty dish that goes well as a side dish to any meat.
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1cup orzo
  • 14.5 oz chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped basil leaves 
  1. Melt butter in heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in orzo and saute until lightly browned. 
  2. Stir in chicken stock and bring to boil. Cover. Reduce heat and simmer until orzo is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 15 - 20 minutes. 
  3. Mix in Parmesan cheese and basil. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to shallow bowl. Garnish with basil sprigs.
