1 c uncooked orzo pasta (Do not be intimidated by the word "orzo". It is a just tiny pasta noodle that can be found in the same aisle as all your other pastas.)

1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp dried basil
1/8 tsp pepper

In a large skillet, saute orzo in butter for 3-5 minutes or until lightly browned.
Stir in broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and orzo is tender. Stir in the Parmesan cheese, basil and pepper.
