Creamy Parmesan Orzo

This is a Farmers Wife Original.

8oz. Orzo Pasta (looks like big grains of rice)
1 can Chicken broth
2 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
1/3-1/2 cup Shredded Parmesan
2-3 Tablespoons Sauce from Bruschetta (no tomatoes just the juice)

In a small saucepan combine chicken broth and orzo and bring to a slow boil. Boil til all the broth is absorbed into the orzo. Once cooked, add in remaining ingredients and stir to combine and til the cheese is melted through. Serve warm.

We just loved this side dish! It was a great compliment to the Bruschetta Chicken, and so easy and yummy. Unfortunately I didn't think to picture it separately from the chicken, but it really is worth a try. Orzo has quickly become my new favorite pasta, it absorbs flavor so beautifully and because it's small like rice it makes a wonderful side. 4.5 Stars
