Cheesy Broccoli Orzo

Side, Starch, Vegetable


1 cup gluten-free or regular orzo (dish will not be GF if using regular orzo)

1-1/2 cups chopped broccoli florets

1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

2 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

1 Tablespoon butter

1/4-1/2 cup 2% milk



Add orzo to a large pot of salted boiling water. Cook for 3 minutes then add chopped broccoli and cook for 2 more minutes, or until orzo is tender. Drain well (broccoli florets are notorious for holding onto water) then return to the pot. Add cheeses, butter, and 1/4 cup milk then stir well and add more milk if needed. Season with salt to taste.
