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.
when I made this I just eyeballed the butter (country crock margerine)a big heaping tablespoon and I used 2 teaspoons of minced garlic (comes in a jar in liquid you store in the frig its the best without all the hassel). I also used a half cup of parmesan cheese (not fresh the kroger brand in the round plastic container and it still pulled in strings like fresh cheese)as well as a heaping tablespoon of dried parsley flakes (kroger brand) and a half a cup of vit D milk and it turned out fantastic!!! The reason I am writing this is just to say you dont have to go the expensive route to still get a great taste and I had all of these things in the house and didnt have to buy anything speacial this was a perfect size side dish for my 10 year old daughter and I. I served this with one large chicken breast cut in half and pounded coated with flower egg and galic and cheese croutons crushed (kroger brand) fried in the skillet with extra virgin olive oil (some things have to be the good stuff lol) would definately recamend this for a fast cheap and tasty side!!
