Rosemary Orzo

What is orzo? Orzo is pasta that is shaped like rice. It’s one of our favorites. We also love the piney smell and flavor of rosemary. It’s what makes these little morsels taste so good!

Here’s How to Do it:

Put the water, broth, rosemary, garlic and salt to a medium saucepan. Bring it all to a boil.

Cover it and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. This gives the water a chance to absorb the flavors.

Remove the rosemary and garlic with a small strainer.

Add the orzo and 1 Tablespoon of butter.

Simmer until the orzo is al dente tender.

Discard any remaining liquid and toss it with the remaining butter.

Serve with very thin slices of  fresh jalapeño on the top. If you use a mandolin slicer you can get nice, super thin slices pretty quick!

This side dish goes great with chicken, pork chops – really, just about anything!
