Buttered Orzo (lunch yum - easy, quick - even better)

buttered orzo served with tuna and Steam broccoli & celery
This is the easiest side dish to make and has a fabulous flavor.

What you will need: orzo, vegetable stock, butter, parmesan cheese.

What to do: Melt about 2 tablespoons of butter in a pot. Add the orzo and at a medium heat you want to brown the orzo until it looks golden. Keep mixing so it does not burn. This should take about 3-5 minutes. Add stock, instead of water and bring to a boil. You will need to let it boil for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the orzo is soft and ready turn of the heat. Add the paremsan cheese and stir in. Salt & pepper and serve immediately- though it tastes really good cold as well.

I served it as a side with tuna salad and steamed broccoli & celery. My girls loved it.

I did not include amounts because you will want to follow the instructions on your orzo package with respect to the amount of water and cooking time. The important bits are that you brown the orzo in butter and then that you use stock instead of water, finishing up by adding your desired amount of parmesan.
