Cheezy Orzo… from a rachel ray cookbook…

Sorry, no picture today 🙂  You can, however, refer to yesterday’s picture of the runzabatta with a side of cheezy orzo (mixed with some corn)

Cheezy Orzo

  • 2 shallots
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups orzo or enriched rice
  • 1/2 cup parmesean cheese…. or you could branch out to almost any kind and it would be delicious
  • salt and pepper to taste.

The method is simple:  saute the shallots and garlic in olive oil til soft.  Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil.  Stir in the orzo, reduce heat and simmer for fifteen minutes or until liquid is absorbed.  Mix in cheese and season to taste!

Matt and I really enjoyed this!  Two cups made a lot, so I might consider halfing next time.  I originially made it to accompany some coconut chicken over at Budget Bytes, one of my newest favorite food blogs!  I also have a saute then simmer feature on my rice cooker, and i might consider trying that with this…. though Im nervous about that 🙂
