Orzo Parmesan Pilaf
The rice-shaped pasta orzo is sometimes labeled riso or rosamarina.
3 1/4 cups (or more) chicken broth
1 pound orzo (rice-shaped pasta)
3 green onions, thinly sliced
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- Bring 3 1/4 cups broth to boil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in orzo and simmer uncovered until just tender but still firm to bite and some broth still remains, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Add green onions and cheese and stir to blend. Season pilaf with salt and pepper. Rewarm over low heat, if necessary, and mix in more broth by 1/4 cupfuls if pilaf is dry. Serve hot.
Makes 6 servings.
