Cheesy Orzo

I make baked chicken and brown rice at least once every 2 weeks. It's easy and healthy. I was planning on making this meal for Saturday night but wanted to switch it up a bit. I decided to make orzo as the side this time. I found this recipe by Rachel Ray. It was easy, tasty and a good alternative to rice. We all liked it!

Cheesy Orzo

2 Tbs. butter
1/2 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 (14 oz) cans chicken broth
2 cups orzo pasta
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper

Melt butter in saucepan. Add onion and garlic. Saute for 3 minutes. Add broth and bring to a boil. Stir in orzo and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce to medium heat. Simmer for 15 minutes, while stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat and stir in cheese and salt and pepper to taste.

This sounds yummy. Maybe you should make it for us when you are here. I'll tend the boys while you make dinner:)
