Garlic Parmesan Orzo

This recipe was based on something I found on http://www.allrecipes.com and thought it was fantastic!  The only real change that I made was adding a little more milk than the recipe called for, because it was done a bit before everyone was over for dinner, and I didn’t want it to dry out too much.

This recipe is definitely a keeper!  Beyond easy and very yummy.  It could easily be made into the star of the meal by adding chicken or shrimp and/ or scallops to it.

2 cups uncooked orzo pasta

3 teaspoons minced garlic

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup milk

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

Cook orzo according to package directions; drain. In a large skillet, saute garlic in butter until tender. Add the orzo, Parmesan cheese milk, parsley salt and pepper. Cook and stir until heated through.

I forgot to take pics of sauteing the garlic, but I’m sure you can figure that part out!
