Reviews for Garlic Parmesan Orzo
"Easy and delicious"
"I liked this dish. Easy to make and very flavourful. I did not measure the garlic, but just minced 3 garlic cloves. I also did as the other poster and used only 3 tbsp butter to cut back on the calories."
"I cut back on the butter and used some good olive oil. I also freshly grated Romano cheese and used couple of tablespoons on cream. If only I had some fresh parsley on hand ... wonderful, easy side dish."
"I had a half box of orzo in the cupboard that I wanted to use up & found this recipe on the fly. Very easy and very tasty."
"Can't go wrong with a garlic, cheese & pasta combo!! A great quick & easy side dish!"
