Caprese Orzo Pasta

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!


Everything you need to make for Caprese Orzo Pasta
  • 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!
