About this recipe: Everyone will love this pasta dish - it's fresh and packed full of flavour. It's also quick and easy to make. Orzo pasta is tossed with Parmesan cheese and fresh basil.
This is one of the most perfect side dishes I have ever made. I do what the recipe states except I do not add any basil. While the orzo is cooking in the chicken broth I saute 8 oz of sliced mushrooms in olive oil, set aside in a bowl and then saute an entire bag, maybe 10 oz of baby spinach in olive oil for maybe 30 seconds and then when the orzo is done cooking I mix it altogether and add the parm cheese. I make this with any meat and it is always LOVED. - 27 Jun 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very good recipe with marvelous flavor. I did note that I needed a 1/2 can more of chicken broth to finish cooking the orzo. Served with Roasted Chicken and a Orange, Walnut, Gorgonzola and Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette from this site. - 29 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Hubby said, "Too much cheese"--yet cleaned his plate. I thought it was SO good, and wished he WOULD have left it on his plate so I could have ate it since I only made enough for two servings. Just delicious. - 21 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
