Creamy Garlic Parmesan Orzo

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups orzo dry
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups chicken broth low sodium
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped


In a large skillet add the olive oil, butter and cook for about 30 seconds until the butter melts. Stir in the onion and garlic and let it cook for about 2 minutes until the onion softens and the garlic becomes aromatic.
Add the orzo to the skillet and let it cook for about 2 minutes just in the oil so that it starts to toast lightly, this will give it a nutty flavor.
Season with salt and pepper then stir in the chicken broth and half and half. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat down to a medium-low, cover with a lid and let it cook for 5 minutes.
Remove the lid and stir in the Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.
Serve immediately.
