You know that phrase, “a little goes a long way?” Well, that absolutely applies to this dish, which tastes rich and buttery but actually only includes 2 tablespoons of butter! The trick is waiting until the end to add the butter when it can enrich the orzo, which has already been flavored by cooking in Progresso broth. The whole dish is redolent of garlic and butter and only needs a squeeze of lemon and sprinkle of fresh herbs for contrast.
