Simple Orzo Pilaf

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 cans chicken broth (about 3 1/2 cups)
  • 1 lb orzo pasta (tiny pasta that comes in a small box or bag in the pasta section)
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • salt to taste


1. In a large saucepan, bring broth to a boil. Stir in orzo and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer uncovered stirring occasionally for 8-10 minutes. The orzo should be thick when finished cooking. You don’t want it dry. I cook mine to al dente as we don’t like our pasta too soft.
2. Remove pasta from heat and stir in green onions and cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately as this dish really sets up the longer it sits. It is creamiest right away.
