Kittencal's Parmesan Orzo
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
11 ingredients
4 servings
This makes a great side dish with chicken or fish, the dried chili flakes are only optional I like to add in for a little heat you may omit if desired, use a good quality chicken broth for this, make certain to saute the orzo until just lightly browned it really improves the flavor of this dish! ;)
