Let’s Make It

To make this orzo:

  1. SAUTE: saute the orzo in butter until browned. Add garlic, and cook for another minute.
  2. SIMMER: add the chicken broth or water, bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until cooked.
  3. SERVE: add the parmesan cheese, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Serve garnished with parsley

Reheating Orzo

Orzo tends to stick when cooled, as the starches bind the orzo together. When reheating, make sure you add a tablespoon of liquid per cup and stir it.

I like to reheat it in the microwave, but the stovetop works well too!
