- Skip the pearl onions and use one shallot instead.
- Use half the amount of butter the recipe calls for.
- Use chicken broth instead of water.
- Takes more like 15 minutes to cook the orzo all the way through.
- The Parmesan cheese was delicious but not really necessary. There was so much flavor already. Next time I will try shredded Parmesan to see if that helps keep it moist.
Before parm (very moist)...
