Everyone is always on the look out for a good side dish. I saw this was like “Orzo? Cheese? Sign me up!!” I don’t have a lot of pictures because it was insanely easy from start to dinner.
Plated – served with teriyaki chicken. All I did was put the teriyaki sauce in the bag with the chicken and let it sit while I got the side together.
I cut the broccoli as close to the top as possible since I am not a huge broccoli fan. This way, there are no tough, gross parts. Mine isn’t as yellow as the original recipe, but it probably has to do with the fact that I had pre-shredded cheese and she used block cheese. I actually doubled the amount of cheese. It didn’t seem very cheesy with just ¼ cup of cheese. Again, I think it goes back to the cheese I used. It was really good. I added some pepper, too. Just to give it a little kick and add an extra layer of flavor in the dish. I wonder what adding a little hot sauce would do?
Regardless, I should have enough to get me through to the weekend. I am trying to time it perfectly that I finish all the leftovers before traveling for the holidays. Although, if I don’t, the little elf that will be checking in on my place will surely eat it 😀
