Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 cup grated white cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup orzo

Preparation

1. Heat the milk in a saucepan.
2. In a pan, bring water to a boil and add orzo pasta.
3. Cook orzo for 9-11 minutes or until tender. Drain.
4. While the orzo is cooking, melt the butter in a separate heavy-bottomed saucepan.
3. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until the paste cooks and bubbles a bit, but don’t let it brown — about 1 minutes.
4. Add the hot milk, continuing to stir as the sauce thickens. Bring it to a boil. Lower the heat, and cook, stirring for 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove from the heat.
5. Add the cheese and stir until melted.
6. Combine with the orzo.
7. Cool and serve.
