  • 1 cup orzo
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • Salt, to taste



Step 1

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.
