Cheesy Orzo Risotto Recipe
Creamy orzo pasta loaded with Parmesan cheese and butter, what could be better? Our Cheesy Orzo Risotto Recipe is easy to make with 4 ingredients in less than 30 minutes.
- 16 oz. orzo
- 6 cups water
- 2 Tbsp. chicken flavored bouillon or 4 chicken bouillon cubes
- 4 Tbsp. butter
- 1 cup Parmesan cheese
Add 6 cups water to a pot over high heat. Then, add 2 Tbsp. chicken bouillon (equal to 4 cubes).
Once water is boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and add 16 oz. orzo pasta.
Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until all the water is absorbed and your pasta is fully cooked. TIP: When you first add the pasta, let it sit until it becomes soft. Then stir it to give it its creaminess.
Add in 4 Tbsp. butter and stir well.
Stir in 1 cup Parmesan cheese. Serve, and enjoy!
- If you don't have chicken bouillon, use 4 cups of chicken broth.
