Parmesan Garlic Orzo

I just love orzo. It’s pasta without being too filling, and it’s rice without being too grainy. Just like pasta, you can use orzo as a side dish, in soup, or even in salad. And just like rice, orzo can be made plain or dressed up a bit. You can’t go wrong with orzo, no matter which way you prepare it!

Tonight I kept things easy and just tossed the orzo with a drizzle of olive oil, garlic, and oregano and let me tell you it was delicious and perfectly simple. See below for recipe!


  • 12 oz GF orzo (I use DeLallo)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (use less if you’re not a big fan of garlic)
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 t oregano
  • 1 t salt

Boil about 4 quarts of water, then add orzo. Let cook for about 11-12 minutes or until soft. Add salt to orzo about halfway through cooking. When finished, drain and return to pot. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle in garlic and oregano, and toss to coat. Serve warm and enjoy!
