Cheesy Orzo

Recipe From: Rachel Ray
This was really good. I got to use fresh parsley from my garden!
2 tbl olive oil
1/2 small onion (chopped)
2 garlic cloves (chopped)
2 (14 oz.) cans of chicken or vegetable broth
2 cups orzo pasta
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
parsley (chopped)

Preheat 8 inch pot with a tight fitting lid to moderate heat. Add oil, onion and garlic and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Stir in orzo and return to a boil. Cover pot and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until pasta is tender and liquid is absorbed. Remove lid and stir in cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Your favorite herbs may be stirred in as well to strengthen the flavor to your liking. I added fresh parsley.
