Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring 1 quart of water to a boil.
  2. Add the salt and orzo and cook until the orzo is tender and has absorbed almost all of the cooking liquid, 8 to 9 minutes.
  3. Stir in the butter, Parmesan and blue cheeses and walnuts.
  4. Serve immediately.
  5. * Note: To toast nuts, spread them on a baking sheet and place them in a 350-degree oven, shaking the pan occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes. Watch carefully because nuts will burn quickly.
