One of my favorite go-to side dish recipes is this Parmesan Orzo. I love it because it’s super simple to make and it tastes so good. The last time I made this recipe, I had some left over Velveeta cheese in the fridge. I swapped out the Parmesan for the Velveeta.
The result? A creamy, cheesy, deeeelicious side dish! The fam was crazy about it. It reminded them of my homemade mac and cheese.
I think this would be perfect pair with my meatloaf or Crispy Oven Fried Chicken!

In a small saucepan combine the orzo and butter. Melt the butter and stir regularly, lightly toasting the orzo. Pour in the broth. Heat over low heat, stirring regularly, until all of the liquid is absorbed. Stir in the cheese until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
