Orzo with Parmesan and Basil


Orzo with Parmesan and Basil
2 Tbsp. butter
1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
1 (14.5 oz.) can chicken broth
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup fresh basil, chopped or 1 Tbsp. dried basil
salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in skillet over medium-high heat.  Stir in orzo and saute until lightly browned.  Stir in chicken broth and bring to boil.  Cover.  Reduce heat and simmer until orzo is tender and liquid is absorbed, approximately 15-20 minutes.  Mix in Parmesan cheese and basil.  Season with salt and pepper.  Transfer to a serving bowl.

*Note:  If you use fresh basil, measure 1 cup of whole leaves, then chop.  I highly recommend using the fresh basil.  It's a completely different dish when you use the fresh herb.
