Ingredients

2 tbsp salted butter

1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 whole sweet onion (finely chopped)

4 cloves garlic (finely chopped)

1 cup shredded carrots

1 cup uncooked orzo

2 cups chicken stock (or veg broth)

2 cups finely chopped broccoli

1 cup whole milk

1 ½ cups sharp cheddar (shredded)

1/2 cup parm (grated)

salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Add olive oil and butter to a heavy bottomed pan (I’m using a braiser) over medium heat. Once hot, add onion and a pinch of salt and cook for 4-5 minutes.

Add garlic and shredded carrots and cook down for another few minutes or until the garlic is starting to get tender and fragrant.

Add uncooked orzo and the stock and stir. Once simmering, put the lid on and let cook for about 6 minutes.

Remove lid and add broccoli and milk and stir once more. Put the lid back on and let the dish cook for 4 more minutes or until the pasta is al dente and the broccoli is tender.

Add the cheese and stir. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
