chopped fresh parsley
salt and ground black pepper
Sorry everyone..that should be 2 teaspoons garlic!
Would be willing to try again with fresh parsley but my family wasn't overly excited with this dish. My four year old said, "Mom, this isn't very good."
This is a great little side dish that could go with virtually any meal. I used half the amount of garlic because my husband doesn’t like strong garlic flavor, and it was still very good.
YUM! I used a bit more milk than called for b/c I wanted it creamier and less garlic just because I didn't want it to be too overpowering. This made a great side dish to our pork cutlets. I will be making this one again! Thanks for sharing. :)
This is a great recipe, but I made a few changes. I used about 1 Tblsp of dried parsley since I didn't have fresh. I added 1/3 cup parm cheese since we like it cheesy and when I boiled the orzo I added half a cup of chicken stock for flavor. At the end I zested a lemon and juiced half and added it. It came out amazing! :-) very happy. Will make again!
I love this! I added my own twist. I sauteed onions in butter, then added the garlic, parm. cheese and milk and I tossed in some peas that I had in the freezer.
FIRST NOTE: there is a review correction from the submitter of this recipe. She said that the garlic should be 2 teaspoons NOT 2 TB. ~ My DH and I loved this dish. I've tried a few orzo dishes, that we liked, but this, hands down, has been our favorite. I did not measure the milk, I just added it until it had the consistency I was looking for. It paired very nicely with 'Simple Slow Roast Chicken' from AR and a tossed salad. Thanks leogrl, for the recipe and your correction.
This recipe is really yummy and easy. I have made it with the garlic and without, and I like it both ways. Now that I have made it a few times I plan to switch it up a little and add veggies or even some shredded chicken to the orzo. Great recipe and very easy!
