Cook the orzo until it's almost done and drain.

Add to the orzo some evoo, petso, parmesan and about 3/4c broth to a baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for about 30 minutes @ 350.

Can add just about anything to this. Zucchini, asparagus, roasted peppers, hot Italian sausage and/or broccoli are all good. If I'm adding any extras I saute them until nearly done before adding to the pasta and baking.

I also like to to use orzo for pasta salads.

Pork Medallions quickly sauteed, held warm while you make a pan sauce with evoo, garlic, apricot jam, and ruby port( salt/pepper goes without saying)! Cook the pan sauce until thickened, add the pork tenderloin medallions back to warm through and serve with lightly buttered orzo. Add a salad , some crisp bread, wine and sit back and enjoy!

Another option to consider is to brown your orzo in the oven to a rich medium brown. Then proceed with your recipe. The browning gives the orzo a very different favor that you will like.

When I make pilaf, my secret to success is to brown the pasta in butter until they both are medium to dark brown before adding rice and broth. The rich nutty flavor that step adds is amazing.

I also do that browning step when preparing buttered egg noodles.

Don't forget to throw some toasted pine nuts in whatever kind of orzo you've made

You should make orzotto. This is similar to Italian risotto but can be made with barley or orzo pasta. The process is the same and the result are yummy!
