One Pot Basil Orzo for One

Basil Orzo for One

This is one of the first recipes I make each spring… as soon as I can trim a few basil leaves off my baby plants. It’s a super flexible recipe and easy to tweak depending on what you have on hand or personal preferences.

Since I came up with this recipe myself and usually just throw things in as I go the steps aren’t super specific but I’ve outlined them as best as I can so you can make this simple, tasty dish yourself. Enjoy!
