Caprese Orzo Pasta is the perfect dish for Spring. It has all of my favorite ingredients as in Mozzarella, tomatoes, Italian seasonings and it’s so easy to make!
- 1 1/2 Cups Orzo Pasta
- 1 Tablespoon Olive oil
- 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
- 3 Cups Chicken Broth
- 1 teaspoon Thyme leaves, fresh
- 1/4 Cup Basil, Fresh, chopped
- 1 Cup Mozzarella, buffalo, or mozzarella pearls
- 1 Cup Tomatoes
- 2/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese, grated, plus more for garnish
- Cracked Pepper, fresh, to taste
- Salt, to taste
In a skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil and pasta.
Cook, stirring occasionally until toasted, about 30-60 seconds.
Add garlic and stir it in followed by thyme.
Add the broth, a small amount at a time.
Bring to a boil, cover the skillet with a lid and turn down to a simmer for 8-10 minutes or until the pasta has absorbed most of the water and is tender.
Add the cheeses, tomatoes, basil and salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
I used the recipe from Oh Sweet Basil. Make sure to check out more recipes on their site!
