Parmesan Garlic Orzo

I love easy side dishes and this one makes the top of my list!  It is not just easy, it is quick too.  This can be made in about 15 minutes and it is sure to please your whole family!

  • 1 1/2 Cups Orzo
  • 3 Tablespoons of Butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic
  • 1/3 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Chicken Bouillon Cube (this is optional, but it gives it a little more flavor
serves 4-6

Bring 3 cups of water and chicken bouillon cube to a boil.  Cook orzo 8-9 minutes (or according to package).  Drain orzo.  Add butter and garlic to pot.  Stir constantly while the butter melts.  Return the orzo to the pot and mix with the butter.  Add Parmesan cheese, stir, and salt and pepper to taste.
