Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 F. Combine the broccoli and cooked orzo in 9x9 baking dish.

Heat a saute pan over medium-high with a few tablespoons of olive oil. Add the onions and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until translucent. Add the garlic, season with salt and cook until fragrant.

Sprinkle with flour and stir to coat onions and garlic. Cook for 1 minute to toast flour. Whisk in the chicken stock and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the mixture thickens slightly.Add milk and 2 cups of cheese and stir together. Adjust seasoning to taste. Pour over the broccoli.

In a medium bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and stir. Sprinkle over the baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes until bread crumbs are golden. Serve warm.

Helpful Tip:
Use equal parts flour and oil for the roux. The darker the roux, the richer the flavor. Stir the roux as you go to avoid lumps.
