cheesy orzo

I learned this recipe when I was about 12 years old at Cooking Camp. Ahh Cooking Camp…what memories. While I learned some invaluable lessons in those classes I never did really turn into much of a cook. I’m just a baker at heart. But I can, however, make this orzo. It’s simple and delicious and it just looks so cute in a coffee mug. Plus it’s only 4 ingredients.


2 c. chicken broth | 1.5 tsp minced garlic | 2 c. orzo | 3/4 c. grated parmesan cheese

Set 2 cups chicken broth to boil and add the garlic. Once boiling, add the 2 cups orzo. Stir, remove from heat, cover, and let sit for 25 minutes until all the broth has absorbed. Fluff orzo with a fork and stir in the parmesan cheese. 

This will last for about 2 weeks in the fridge.
