Ree’s orzotto recipe treats orzo pasta like risotto rice, creating a rich and creamy side dish that's great with salmon, vegetables or any kind of meat.



  1. Heat the broth in a small saucepan and keep warm.
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the rosemary and shallot to the oil, then cook for a minute. Add the orzo, red pepper flakes and garlic and cook, stirring, for an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Deglaze with the wine and add the warm broth. Allow the broth to come to a simmer, then cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir in the cream, cheeses, sun-dried tomatoes and kale. Cook until the kale wilts and the sauce is thick and creamy, an additional 3 to 4 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Garnish with the parsley and serve.
