This little black dress of a side dish pairs with practically anything—grilled meat, roasted chicken, sautéed vegetables. Like rice pilaf, the orzo is browned in butter before broth is added, which gives it a rich, nutty flavor.
Vary the flavor by adding basil and toasted pine nuts, sautéed mushrooms and thyme, or peas, mint, and a squeeze of lemon.

Simple but delicious.
I've been making this for years. Delicious! You can boost the flavour with all sorts of additions if you like, but the browning of the butter is what puts it over the top.
Easy and delicious. We added garlic.
