Mushroom Orzo with Parmigiano

Doesn’t this sound delicious? Well, it is. I just love mushrooms and the richness of orzo and fresh parmigiano make this a decadent but easy side dish.

You’ll need:
Orzo (I used the entire pack because I was cooking for several people)
2 cans of chicken broth
1/2 lb of cermini mushrooms
Fresh grated parmigiano
Fresh parsley to garnish

Wash mushrooms, be sure to get all the dirt off. Then slice and combine with 2 cans of chicken broth plus one can of water. Bring to a boil. Let that boil for a few minutes to soften the mushrooms.

Then add orzo and reduce to a simmer. Follow the directions on the orzo package but this should take 10 minutes or so. Stir frequently so the orzo doesnt stick to the bottom of the pot. Once all the broth has been absorbed, it’s ready to serve.

Meanwhile, grate some fresh parmigiano.

Place on a plate and sprinkle with parmigiano and top with a little parsley.
