Basil Butter Orzo
25 mins (prep 10, cooking 15)
10 ingredients
8-10 servings
This is a nice side dish for spring or summer. It goes very nicely as a side for fish or seafood. Feel free to adjust the amount of garlic to your taste. The orzo pasta can be cooked up to 4 hrs ahead: cook and drain, then rinse under cold water; drain again and store covered in the refrigerator. Found in Sunset magazine.
