Garlic Parmesan Orzo Pasta: made in one pot! | The Recipe Rebel

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!


2½ cups low sodium chicken broth
1½ cups dry orzo pasta (about 278 grams)
2 cloves garlic (finely minced)
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
⅓ cup cream (any kind — heavy cream will give richer flavor, light cream will be a bit thinner)
¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
Combine broth, pasta, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium skillet.
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to medium-low and simmer, stirring often (you can cover or leave uncovered). Cook until most of the liquid is absorbed and the pasta is cooked to your preference. (If you want to cook the pasta further but the liquid is gone, just add a splash more broth).
Stir in cream, Parmesan and parsley. Serve.
