Orzo Pasta with Butter and Parmesan
This dish just came to me several months ago, I had half a box of Orzo pasta and thought to myself "hmmmm, what if I just simply cooked the pasta and added butter and some fresh grated Parmesan Cheese, salt and pepper"?
DADUM!!! It was freaking delicious!! creamy and smooth, and the Parmesan put it over the top. This will be one of my menu staples from now on. You could add chives, roasted tomatoes, whatever sounds good, or just leave it simple as I did. YUM!
1/2 box of Orzo pasta, or double recipe for a full box
salt and pepper to taste
2 scallions, chopped
2 tbl butter
1/4 cup finely grated fresh Parmesan
Make your Orzo pasta according to the package directions, I let it cook about 2 minutes longer than the package indicated, drain.
Add your butter, salt, pepper and Parmesan and mix well.
Top with scallions and serve. I paired it with a Rotisserie Chicken and Roasted Butternut Squash!
